There's also no better time to see if my laptop is feeling more energetic than it was a week ago for transferring photos I have to my blog post....
Today is beautiful, after a lot of rain yesterday. However, I don't think we received as much rain as fell on Louisville, Kentucky, home of the annual Kentucky Derby. It seems they have never had a soggier time for this Big Moment, without fail on the first Saturday in May. I haven't yet talked to photographer friends of mine who were there to make photos. I hope they and their cameras survived -- with a sense of humor -- intact.
OK, today, what can I say, more flowers are coming your way:
|Milkweed in late spring, with what is not a Monarch Butterfly.... Perhaps a Painted Lady?|
|These aromatic beauties have lots of names, many containing the word Lily, such as Resurrection Lily. However they are sometimes known as simply "naked ladies"|
|This is joe pye weed, in the wild, near where I live.|
|And this is also joe pye weed, as part of an English country garden. So what does "weed" mean??|
|spring beauties, early emergers, so to speak|
|A redbud tree celebrates spring by producing these lovely pink/purple flowers directly from its trunk or branches.|
|Eventually this flowering produces an intense marvel signally the start of spring's showy season.|
|pond side weeds, catching some leaf time|
|daisies sharing the sun|
|plus a daisy solitaire|
I guess this is plenty of flower photos for now. I hope there's time soon for everyone to go out and look around. We still have dogwoods in bloom, for one thing. Happy spring seeing to all.
