The sun was shining on the bark of this cherry tree when I photographed it yesterday morning. The light coming in created a cool effect. It almost looks like a rainforest!
This tiny apple is just beginning to ripen. You can see a little touch of red on the top. I photographed this one on one of our smaller apple trees we planted a couple of years back. It takes new trees a while to start producing. Hopefully we’ll have a crop this year.
Its hard to get flies to wait long enough for you to make their portrait, but luckily I had just enough time to snap a photo of this one sitting on a sunflower leaf before it flew away.
Yesterday afternoon I captured one of my best clover shots ever. Half of its pedals were dead, but the other half were still standing strong. Clovers are beautiful flowers, but you can’t really see their beauty until you look at them up close.
As I was walking around the lawn yesterday, I discovered this beautiful wildflower growing near our pine trees. I’ve never seen a flower like this before. Its shape closely resembles a star!
Our honey suckle vine is now producing brilliant red flowers. The ruby throat humming birds and the bees love them. The bunch in the photo above will open soon.
I think we’ve finally got our garden up and going. This year, we plan to plant lots of flowers. They are so beautiful and take less work than vegetables. The marigolds in the photo above aren’t very big yet, but there’re already gorgeous. I photographed them at several different angles, but I thought this ground level shot looked best.
