Ready for some of Richard's wonderful photos of the lovely Spring? Hope you enjoy!
Fringe flower. The flower petals are long and bright pink. Richard got this shot of the bud before it burst into bloom. The color is just stunning!
This was on one of our overcast days, but trust me, it's gorgeous.
Beaver alert! You can see how the beaver has cut this tree down. Do you also see how it looks as if it also took giant bites from the felled tree? I looked it up and that is just what they do, they only eat the inner bark, apparently. "Just give me the tender bark, Sylvia". Ha, ha...anybody know why I chose the name, "Sylvia"?
Sylvia is feminine given name of Latin origin, also spelled SILVIA.
The name originates from the Latin word for forest SILVA and its meaning is spirit of the wood.
Pansies and cabbages get along very nicely in a planting.
Lilacs in blooms! I was so excited to see them (and smell them!) I wonder if it is rare that they bloom in Georgia. I really have only seen them when I was visiting England. So pretty against a blue sky!
The Eastern Swallowtail butterfly was very fluttery over this pink azalea. The only reason the butterfly is out of focus is because it is moving, Richard is as steady as a rock!
There, this one landed and was still for just a split second...
