Carefree


"Beckoning"
What magnificent day Sunday was! While my beloveds prepared a lovely breakfast for Mother's Day, I took out my camera, walked around our little cottage, and captured the world of springtime. 

We've had a most unusual spring, with all the usual milestones happening about a month early. Does this portend a long summer, a long fall, a long winter, or none of the above? Nature always seems to have a way of balancing herself out, so it will be most interesting to see where the scales tip.

Meanwhile, a few images from our lovely spring . . .
Glistening

"Hello? Anybody down there?"
"Peek-a-boo!"
Fade to gray 
Can you see the wee "comet"
All systems go for take off
Gossamer seedlings
"Is this the party to whom I am speaking (snort, snort)"

"Am I blue . . . over you . . ."
May the lightness of spring travel with you throughout the week . . .

What a delight! And perhaps the most magical photo was of the dandelion seeds, from the most humble flower of all...

Gorgeous glistening and dandy macro photos! Peek-a-boo could double as a purple headed preying mantis. A day of wonder indeed!

So lovely, Kathleen. I love your little captions, also. I did indeed see the wee comet and I laughed out loud at the Ernestine/Lily Tomlin reference. One ringy dingy! ;)

I love those purply flowers in the sixth shot. They used to abound on the lawns of my childhood. Weeds, no doubt, but I love 'em.
