Sometimes the best pictures are found in your own backyard, especially this time of year. Yesterday, I spent about an hour walking around our yard, and here are some of the things I captured with my camera.
We have Lady Banks Roses growing on the fence in our backyard ... this glorious yellow one, and two white ones.
The honey bees and bumblebees love the flowers on our Nellie Stevens Hollies, and they were literally swarming around them as I took these pictures.
I also discovered this little guy sunning himself on one of the branches. His body was only a couple of inches long, but his tail was probably twice that long.
The Azaleas growing around our pond popped open over the weekend, and I loved exploring them up close.
I hope to keep a photo journal this spring and summer of our plants and flowers as they grow and bloom, and I'm sure I'll discover a lot of lagniappe along the way, like the bumblebees and little chameleon I saw yesterday.
I hope you're enjoying a glorious Spring in your part of the world, too.
