Hi everyone, hope you are all keeping well. We had a reversal in the weather, yesterday record highs, today raining and in the 40s. One good thing about it though, I can literally see the grass starting to grow. I am keeping the horses in, hoping it wont be for too long before the hot weather returns and dries the mud up again so I can put them out, by then there should be a little bit of grazing for them. There is nothing like rain and a bit of warmth to get grass growing.
It is amazing when I think of the little things that make me happy now, my priorities sure have changed over the years. Now I get excited when I get a new pitch fork LOL. I find I am just so much more aware of the things that happen around me that I normally wouldnt have given a second thought. My sense of appreciation has changed dramatically. The same with my photography. I can't look at a book or magazine or book without scanning the photos first and wondering what they did to get the shot or admiring a particularly good one. I may get to reading the print eventually!
Todays shots are of a few Robins on the muck heap (manure pile LOL). I had to crop the picture quite a bit because they were quite far away. The second one is an update on those buds I posted a picture of on 10 March that John said looked like christmas ornaments. This is just one of the varieties that have started to open. I will post the others when I have edited them. The original buds all looked the same but now that they are opening they all look different, colors and form. Froze my hands off getting these today!
Well that's it for now. I eventually got my stock submission finished and mailed off. Keeping everything crossed that it will amount to something.
Have a good evening all and for those of you waking up good morning and have a great Friday. Oh yes I mustn't forget Catblogging day!!
