In the Spring, I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours.
While waiting on the fresh snow to melt outside, I had a bit of fun photographing the bright flowers in a mixed bouquet given to me by a friend. I spotted a couple of crocus blooming in the garden on 31 March, but they were eaten by jackrabbits within a few hours of my noticing. “Ephemeral,” indeed….
The colour is so cheerful!
I have had a lot of tulips eaten by deer this year so I sympathise with you on the loss of your crocus!
The place seems overrun with jackrabbits this year – more than ever before! It gets a bit frustrating, but I guess they have to eat, too….
I suppose so, yes…..:(
Your pretty yellow bouquet flowers remind me of our native Texas dandelions. I’m not opposed to the introduced species I grew up with, but I think these are so much prettier. Right now, they’re everywhere, but only in the morning. In the afternoon, they close, and you’d think there wasn’t a dandelion anywhere.
Dandelions are a joy! We are still waiting on them here; it has been very cold until this week.
The weather outside is a bit confused to say the least. I almost agree with Mark Twain. At least this time of year the snow melts more quickly and usually the daffodils still pop up through them. I love yellow flowers as they are so full of cheer.
Finally, the weather is beginning to stabilize just a bit…time to enjoy the spring flowers! 🙂
Very pretty – love your depth of field. Squirrels, that hog my bird feeder food, also find time to eat the heads off of some tulips…and one found joy in trashing a small garden of crocus I planted last fall… little rats.
Thanks! The constant critter battle in the garden can be a bit wearing….
