White, Yellow, Pink and Green and Birds and Dragonflies in between!

Continuing with the spring photos today..
and some late spring ones too.

I love the bright, sunny colors that the new plants and
flowers bring to spring.

Especially the bright, neon green of fresh growth and the sunny yellows, bright pinks and bright whites...

Marsh Marigolds (cowslips):

New apple blossoms sprouting on our apple trees:
(at the time this posts, those blossoms are now apples growing, about the size of a large quarter already!)

Cherry Blossoms!:

Chipping sparrow at our feeders (just threw that in because with Spring, comes all KINDS of birds to our feeders!):

I always know it is getting warmer when I see that
dragonflies have hatched!:

Bohemian Waxwing in our apple blossoms!:

I loved this log full of mushrooms overhanging a field full of fresh white

Bright green, unfurling ferns!:

Mother Nature really does a good job of putting fresh flowers
and colors on its table for us after a long, drab
winter, doesn't she??

I'd like to invite her over to help me do my delayed spring cleaning...
what do you say, Mom Nature???

Beauty- for sure. Spring cleaning- not so much! Save it for the winter, the enjoyment of nature is more important.

Gorgeous pics as usual! But I have a question...

Is it pronounced 'cows lips' or 'cow slips'? ; )

Dave said...

I liked your photos on this and your previous blog post - Dave

Debbie Lo said...

Awesome photos, as always! I thought it was neat that the dragonfly's wings, up close, look like the stained glass windows in our church. Very cool!

I agree, spring is an absolute welcome relief from winter, and it's as if mother nature is celebrating it with lots of COLOR!!!
