blackberries and forget me nots



















It's hard to believe after all of the cold and rain and wind, it is actually May 10th. Remember this same bird bath from January? 
Between the strong sun shining and the newly grown leaves of Spring, the color in this photograph looks nearly fluorescent.
And don't forget, if you'd like to enter for a chance to win my photofinder giveaway, please leave a comment on saturday's post. Also, I am extending the giveaway until midnight thursday just in case I missed anyone who may have been out of town visiting their beloved mother this weekend.
To any readers who happen to be mother's, happy Mother's Day!

I had to check out the winter photo and then this one... what a big difference! But living in Maine, I am used to seeing the seasons change and let me tell you I like this photo MUCH better! Up here things are growing, my neighbors tulips are up and it just has the smell of spring here. Thunderstorms last night though, and cooler and rainy today. It won't be long before summer is here in New England!

Cold and rain seems unreal. We were at Disney World (Epcot) today and when we left for home this afternoon it was 101! Sheesh!

Thanks much for your great comment on Ocala DP!

Happy Mother's Day!

Cold and rain and wind? Sounds like Melbourne - and we're three weeks away from the start of winter!

Wow, that shadow is so strong and clear, Lily. What a lovely spot in the garden, too.
