springtime in my yard

in the springtime, one of my favorite things to do is take slow walks through my little yard with the camera and a pair of scissors so i can make little bee bottle bouquets. before my house was a rental property, it used to be the home of a little old woman who liked to garden, and we now get to reap the rewards she left for us. there are things that bloom in the yard all year long, and i try my best to keep them going. not that i have a CLUE what i am doing! anyway, i have pretty much stolen the hippie's camera--i have it in my purse always, and i take pictures with it ALL THE TIME. here are some of the photographs i took last week. and if you want, you can check out the whole set, which is a work in progress and has some pics from back in january as well. flowers make me happy. i am so grateful to the unknown little lady who obviously loved this small plot of land so much and who left me with such a wealth of colors and textures and scents.

Such beautiful flowers in your yard! I too, often (usually daily)wander about our yard taking pix of what I see. Makes me happy. I guess I am a woman of simple pleasures and I probably need to get out more. ha!
