Spring Forward

Spring is springing, hurray! I wandered around the yard with the camera to see what I could see. Here's what I ended up with.

The azaleas are starting to come out.

In addition, although it is normally a colder-weather plant, our strawberry plants have decided to pop out some berries for us. They are still green, but getting big!

While I was over there, I got one of the blossoms with a berry started in the middle. I haven't processed in black and white for a while.

And now let's check out the dogwood, which has more blossoms this year than ever before (it's relatively new).

Here's a very typical Florida sight, particularly on warm days. I caught this guy just emerging from between two old pieces of fence.

I passed the birdfeeder on my way back to the house, where an unusual visitor had just alighted.

I guess he decided it was a little unseemly for a woodpecker to be eating at a feeder, so he retreated to a tree.

What a gorgeous day to be outside. We are trying to take full advantage of all these days, knowing that the torrid summer is slowly making its way toward us...

Beautiful pictures as always. I love the strawberries, literally!! I can't wait until June when we have fresh strawberries here. Enjoy the spring weather.
