I had a fairly low key weekend. We got some much needed rain and then the sun came out. The wind was so intense on Saturday that I briefly thought I would wind up in the land of oz when I went on a short walk. The shot of the crane below was taken downtown. The other shots were taken in my yard or neighborhood.I'm continuing to hold my breath each time a flower blooms, or each time a tree shows its expanding buds. The temperature fluctuates from winter to spring and back to winter. Some early blossoms have been killed, others are holding their own.
I love the grape hyacinth below because it was a gift which started in a pot. Year after year has come back from the spot where I planted it outdoors, in a somewhat protected bed.
You may have to click inside the photograph below to see the basketball net nestled in with the trees which are beginning to bloom. I took the shot in front of a neighbor's house and I liked the way the basketball net almost looks like it's one of the trees. Unfortunately, I fear the trees blossoms were zapped last night by the cold front which moved through yesterday.
