Spring is fleeting….


In the Spring, I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours.

∼Mark Twain

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….

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

I'm delighted to hear from you - thanks so much for your comments!
