I haven’t been up to snuff lately, fighting a stomach bug. Finally feeling a little better today to go for a walk around the neighborhood. I can’t believe in one week how much has changed, Trees are beginning to flower, daffodils are fully bloomed, showing off their beauty and azaleas are beginning to open up.
Here are some photos I snapped of the changes all around the neighborhood.
While I was snapping this photo I something slither by – a garden or garter snake. It made me jump a little. Though it is harmless I wasn’t about to get in its way.
It was a pleasant day, not too cool, but in need of a light jacket. I love watching things grow and green up. The pond behind our house is still not showing any green. It won’t be long though. I will definitely be taking photos of the changes that will come on in the blink of an eye.
The red wing black birds have been here for a while. They love the pond and hide out in the reeds there. Soon the reeds will grow tall and green and afford the black birds some hiding places from the many hawks that come hunting here.
We always know there are some hawks around when all the birds suddenly disappear and it gets deathly quiet. Another time we may hear a cacophony from the birds as a warning that a fox or some other creature is nearby. It’s amazing that they send out a warning to each other. As I took the photo above I noticed there were no birds around and eerily quiet. That means something was out there hunting once again!
I hope you enjoyed my photos. Spring is sprouting out all over and spreading its beauty in all directions. I look forward to enjoying more and sharing it all with you.
