Friendship 

There is nothing so wonderful as knowing someone cares. 

Beautiful flowers from a beautiful friend so easily fills my heart.   

This is the third time this week some lovely soul has brought me flowers to brighten my day.   More photos to come on those, but these gorgeous tulips took my breath away. 

Flower power

I love flowers as much as the next person but I tend not to photograph them too often. Sometimes the sheer beauty of them just as they are makes me not want to interrupt what they are sending out to the world.  

I do however like to digitally enhance pics of flowers to make them look entirely unlike themselves. Adding perspective rarely hurts.  🙂 

Notes in harmony with love

I woke up at 11 today.  My son was still out cold, enjoying a good sleep in, and my hubs was out on the deck getting some nice warm sun on his skin.  I drank my tea in the sunshine and all within 30 min, captured a heck of a lot of happy little creatures.

Everyone seems willing to share. IMG_6142

These two have a nest in the trees – awaiting their little ones.  I love their song more than any other. IMG_6182

Fly by!IMG_6203

I think he’s my little woodpecker friend.  Maybe not – light was right at him and it was hard to get a clear shot but I LOVED how this turned out.IMG_6318

There’s the woodpecker, sharing nicely. IMG_6339

Can’t see the birds for all the SPRING! YAYYYY!IMG_6363

And, Finally – the little Robin who gives me hell every time I try to take his photo.  I have countless shots of him screaming at me to bugger off and let him rip up my lawn so he can find is dinner.  This is him sitting smugly on my roof.  He know’s I’m taking the photo but he’s pretending not to care.  IMG_6372-001

Neglect

I have a love for old, neglected buildings; particularly like the one I’ve captured below because it’s still being used by the place that owns it.  It’s packed with what looks like junk, but really, is the spare and often expensive parts taken from old airplanes that are kept and lovingly worked on in the beautifully maintained hangers just out of frame.

There are so many people who pass this building by and shake their heads, somehow offended by it’s lack of perfection.  I don’t understand that at all.  Picture perfect lines become boring after a while.  Sometimes it’s nice to let your eyes glide over something with more texture and life than you can actually take in though a single glance.

I apply that thought to human beings too….even more so.
