Nature Notes: April Showers
We have had a lot of April showers which hopefully bodes well for the flowers.
It is common to see Canadian Geese at unexpected places this time of year. This pair was hanging out at my doctor's office parking lot.
The one above was so annoyed by my photographing it that he or she stuck its tongue out at me.
I always like to see the primrose (shot above) return. The swallowtail butterflies are coming back too.
I posted some similar shots of the swallowtail in the azaleas for Today's Flowers but I took so many photographs I thought I'd use a few for nature notes too.
The robins are very active and keep an eye on me from the roof too.
My roses have been beaten down by the rain and wind but a few boughs have straightened up on their own while others are on the ground.
I took the shot below at sunset last night but alas no sun.
