It is going to storm today for sure, so here I am at 8:00 AM or so, getting this done before the storm blows the blossoms to the ground.
Seen here, a cluster of violets that a past owner let stay between the hostas and the lamb's tail.
Same day and time (early morning), but different angles. the second photo also uses the grain filter so that the blossoms show up pink, like they do in person. Without it, the photo is all shape and little color, which I suppose is all right too.
The frost this morning was heavy enough to give crisp edges to the clover and grass.
Target has begun its annual pastel riot. Check the tie dye and blue suede cake mixes. Spring is definitely here.
There are reasons why I shouldn't have birds, reasons I share with the fictional character, Lorelei Gilmore. I think they sense it. Not one is chirping, "Buy me! Buy me!"
it feels like spring, and in southern Missouri and all of Kansas, spring is that heavy sky feeling that a storm is coming soon. This bush may not look like much now, but the beginnings of buds say that in a week or so it will be covered in magenta blooms.
Time to cut down the pampas for new growth.
