Today's Flowers: The Rhodies Have Arrived
|From Apr 9, 2011|
Spring has been a merciless tease this year. Days are tropically warm and humid and downright chilly in a matter of minutes. Trees are slow to come into leaf (We are still waiting for the oaks and sycamores.). The beautiful fragrances of spring are lost in the heavy rains, and the babies--geese, turtles, turtles, turtles--are snuffed at by careless or ignorant drivers and who knows what. Spring is the season of the held breath for me as I wait and watch to see which critters will make it.
Last week I bought a Canon Powershot SD 1400 IS Digital Elph just so I could have a light, small camera with me at all times. I played with it a bit on Friday, when I photographed the slow-blooming rhododendron, which has been struggling to bounce back from the winter. Mother Nature seems just a tad lethargic this spring. I am only glad she is showing up.
