Shasta Daisy After Rain

Our area has been inundated with spring and summer rain.  Last week, we had ten days in a row with some amount of rain before we finally had a break of one whole day of sunshine.

All this rain does make for some interesting photographs, though.  And, finding cheery flowers makes any day brighter.

You may ask, “What’s your favorite?”  I’d have to say, “Every one!”

Spring Treasures

Heading outside with camera in hand in spring is a bit like a treasure hunt.  Mother Nature left behind some interesting finds!

White Pine cone

Over the years, I’ve found blossoms on this white pine tree in last spring, but never found any cones.  This year, there are several.

In the sunshine

Several stalks of burdock clusters were left standing in spite of winter’s snow.

Part of spring is finding things left behind, but soon there will be new growth out in the yard.  I’m  ready.
