Flowers - Bleeding Heart

All righty, be prepared to be sucked in to a world of pink hearts, graceful green stems, bursting light - and subtle shade.  =D

These are the sweetest little flowers, and looking at them, all bunched together and noticing the details too, it's obvious that they didn't just accidentally come into being, they were purposely designed!

An overhead view . . .

 . . . and an underhead veiw!
(Yes, I did just make that word up)

Dramatic lighting can be very fascinating

Ok, so you detail people might notice that the lines in the background slant to the right.
That might bug you.

Yes, it could've been straightened, but that ruined the swoopy effect of the branches, so I decided not to.  ;)
If it's driving you right up the wall however, just skip it and look at the next one, which is nice and orderly.


 Subtle Shade . . . 

♥  LOVE this one!  ♥

Bursting Brights!

Notice how the stems lead you into the picture, taking you baaaaaack . . .

So, do ya'll like the teal/blue background?

At first I was annoyed by the intrusion of the garden hose, but then I thought "Hey! I could complain, or I could be creative and use it to my advantage for a unique photo!"

So, I did. What d' ya'll think of the result?   =)

Again, I just love these gentle arches . . .

God Bless!

Spring Flowers and a small article of notice

I got so caught up in the flowery trees that I neglected the flowers on the ground! (Tsk, tsk.) 
Therefore I shall scatter pictures of them in the next couple posts.  =)

I shall also mention that I've been blogging for a year and 5 days!  (I started on the 22nd)
I looked back to that first post and saw that it seemed rather stiff and uncertain, kinda like I didn't know what I was really doing. (Which . . . I didn't! =P)
Now I have a better idea of what the purpose of this blog is and what I would like to accomplish on it.

So, without further ado, I present some more pictures of God's handiwork!

* Bleeding hearts

* Dontcha' just love the little curly-cues on this Dandelion?

 * Daisy

* Tulips

* Daffodil

* Grape hyacinths

* Petunia

* Lilac

* Rosebud

* Colombine

* Rose

 As you might have noticed, this post doesn't focus on one particular flower. How are you liking' that?  =D

1. Do you like the "focused" posts?  (where I show pictures of just one flower/tree/person/)

2. Or,  you think mixed posts are more interesting,

3. Or, you'd like to see a little of both?

 I'd really like to know, so don't be shy!    =)

God Bless!

Oh, and in case you'd like to see what just hatched robins look like, you might click here, because I found a picture I searched frantically for the other day to include in my post . . .  but didn't find.  ;)

The Cutest-Ugly Things You ever Saw

This post is long overdue!
In the last post mrs. robin hadn't even laid her eggs yet; now, they've been laid, hatched and opened their eyes already!

Here's a summary of the last two weeks:

The firstborn!

Mrs. Robin weathering the Snow that swept in unexpectedly  on the 2nd of May . . .

A Fine Family of Three. (The family in the Riverbirch tree has four! Pictures on that family coming soon.)

Time passes . . .

Aren't they just the Cutest- ugly things you ever saw?  <3

Four days later . . .

Baby robins getting their early-late morning snack . . .    ;)

You can just hear her, "Alright robin-ettes, settle down, it's time for your early-late morning nap."

*Chorus of protests from nest*

*Tweets cut off as momma plops down* . . .

But, inevitably, rascally robin #3(his name is Horace) pokes his beak out, "Help! Help! I'm being sat on!!"

Momma robin, "Horace, if you don't stay down, I'll have your dad come sit on you!"

Two days later . . . feathers and pinions start appearing.

I think this guy was tryin' to tell his momma something . . ."Worm? Please? Now? Soon?"

Incidentally though, we found out they were old enough to recognize vibrations as the signal that their parents had arrived with food, however, all vibrations must sound alike to baby robins, because a photographer traipsing down the stairs had the same effect. =D
Only one took the bait though.  ;)


After watching them a couple days, I noticed something odd she would do. After she fed them she would pause a while, cock her head, look at them (all jabbering at once), open and close her beak a few times, then fly off.

Now I'm sure there's a logical explanation for this, but one wonders if it's really a (one sided) conversation:

Baby robin #1(We'll call him Robert)  "What's for lunch?!  Are we having worms again?! Is that all their is out there?! What do caterpillars taste like?!"
Baby robin #2  (Harold, at the same time) "Mommmm! Horace just stuck his wing in my eye again! And he was crowding me earlier!! And-"
Baby robin #3 "Mom! Mom! Guess what?! I saw something! It was REALLY big and part of it was square and black, and Robert thought it was you with food!"

This has got to be one of my favorites: Mouths open all the way!

Did you know baby robins can sleep-eat?
They really would fall asleep with their mouths open!

They are just so funny.

Welp, that's all for now!

God Bless!
