Forgot this yesterday. The silhouette of the trees over the moon.
And today I found another of these trees. Makes my nose itchy just looking at it. Allergy season!
And when you can't do anything else, mash and twist and distort and otherwise mangle and call it art.

This is the second time I've tried to take photos of these blooms. They are tiny. The macro lens' shallow depth of field is real handicap here. OK. I'm just making excuses for why I'm not happy with the result.
And when I'm not happy I paint.
These, on the other hand, are all drama. They're gorgeous and they know it.

This tree is down the street from my home. It's the only one of its kind in the neighborhood as far as I know. It has a fern-like leaf and these spiky blooms.
And then there's this polar coordinate of the blooms that resembles (in my mind's eye) porcelain and stone with walnut inlay.

You can never have too many daffodil photos. The first places that bloomed are now naked. In a week, these too will be gone.
When you have three cats and a large squirrel population, you don't get many birds to stick around long enough for me to get my camera and step outside to the porch. As it was, I had to filter this with a little dry brush to make up for a less-than-perfect focus.

Found these in a neighbor's yard. When I lived closer to Town and Country Village, these were everywhere. These are the only ones I've found so far this year.
And these . . . Well, they look like someone cut strips of tissue paper and stuck it together on a plant. It's the oddest flower. It reminds me of the time a month ago that I spent five minutes taking photos of a plant I found fascinating. It was only when I was looking at the shots later that I realized the plant was plastic.
As you can tell from the datestamp and the rushed nature of this post, I haven't been putting much effort into these posts. Get something up. Meet the deadline. I'm not happy about it, but the alternative - not posting - wouldn't make me any happier.
So it's a photo a day. The blogging not so often.
