Yesterday was such a beautiful day! I’ve been carrying around a nasty sinus infection for a few weeks now and it felt sooooooooo great to be outside feeling slight kisses from the sun on my face. Of course it is raining and “cold” again now…and…hold on to your underwear…snow is expected this weekend! YIKES! Oh well, I suppose we go through this every spring. Still…there is just something magical about all the wonderful transformations taking place in nature.

Jakob had invited the neighbor kids over to check out what they could find in the pond just below our house. Of course he could not go “unparented”, so I grabbed my camera and tagged along. It was so sweet to see how they cleaned out every inch along the edge of the water looking for anything that moved. Every now and then I would hear shrieks of joy…and “come and look what we caught”! So sweet!

Check out the itty-bitty frog I captured. I was taking photos of the kids and suddenly heard this loud frog sound. We can hear them from our house and I always imagined that they were quite large. No bigger than my thumb!!! When they make their croaking sound they blow up their chest like a balloon. It was really crazy to get so close to the “action”.

Here are some of the images I enjoyed “catching”!

Yes! Spring is here!

 

It was one of those days…you know the sun is shining and you just can’t stand it any longer…sitting inside, that is. Back in early April I went for a walk below my house and took my camera along. I had initially planned on walking to the old farm and back, nothing major. Actually that was exactly what I did…but I was gone for about three hours. It was a blast! It was a little chilly, but the sun warmed just enough to not get cold. I shot the cat, no…not literally, some dried-up flowers, well…weeds probably, old farm machinery and an old house. I could go back today and get totally different images.

Here are a few of my shots from that day! It seems like ages ago. I have actually worn shorts since then…and the grass is green! Yikes! I’ll have to go on another walk.  : ) Enjoy!

B-Cat, one of my helpers.

Jordy had fun chasing B-Cat and trying to lean on me when I got down close to the ground to get a good shot.

Who knew thistles could look this lovely when they were dead?!
