Spring showers

It's been raining pretty steadily for the past few days,
but I don't mind a bit
because it brings with it new blooms
and much greener grass.

I glad that the world is getting more colorful even though the skies are a bit gray.

It's been raining here too, but I said the same about it as you've written. And it's nice to see something with buds!

I can't wait! It looks like you're a little further ahead than us, though. Yay! =)

I have no idea what that shrub/tree is, but I love the way it's bursting with promise - and the colour is great!

Hi i am new here just followed your comment via leavesnbloom. I love that macro of whatever tree that is, very lovely. You seem to be a very very good mom, and a good photographer too. I also love those photos of your children and the zoo in the older photos.

I want to know what kind of tree/bush it is too! Great picture- love the red tint to it. Champ and I were just squinting out the window at our maple tree this weekend. Through the rain/snow/rain we realized it's tips were tinted read. Guess that means Spring is around here somewhere!

Very pretty prespring shot. I like that you can make out some spider webs along the stem!

That is so interesting! Love it.

To everyone who asked... I haven't a clue what kind of tree that flower is from. Sorry. It grows in my backyard and isn't one that I would consider a flowering tree, but it does have these little blooms for a short time before the leaves appear.

Beautiful macro! Love the sharp focus in the foreground and blurry background. The trees are beginning to bud here, too.
