Weekends Snapshot and Nature Notes - Blue Skies at Last
For me the big news in terms of both nature notes and weekend snapshot has been that we finally had a sunny weekend, complete with a bright blue sky.
I'm glad we've had a wet spring and hopefully I'll never take rain for granted again after the drought I talked about at length on my blog. But I was oh so ready for a pretty weekend.
Now that we have the sun to work its magic after the rains, everything is coming to life. There are so many new plants, buds, and flowers that I could end up with a very long post if I tried to cover them.
The first two shots were taken at home. The shot above and below were taken during my Saturday walk on a nearby trail.
The main aspect of my natural world I'm featuring with this combo weekend snapshot and nature notes post is the blue sky. I haven't doctored any of these photos. What I saw is what you get. The shot below is from my Sunday walk at the NC Art Museum's park.To find other participants in one or both of these theme posts, please visit Nature Notes, and/or Weekend Snapshot.
