You know spring is coming
when you can see pussywillows
against the blue sky.

Ice Drops

The last of my images from the snow last week.
The day started with rain, and became colder.
I love the crystals in the ice...

Crocuses on Tuesday, when it snowed

Tuesday started out sunny, but then the rain started.
And then the rain turned into snow...
Ah, mid April in Ontario...

Scilla in the Snow

I have a few flowers blossoming now, but do you want to guess what the weather was doing yesterday?
It started with rain, but it turned into snow,
so I would pop outside for a few captures, every hour or so...

Wooly Bear Caterpillar

I was out for a walk, and saw about half a dozen dead wooly bears, so when I saw this fellow galloping across the path, I had to capture him. 
Boy, was he ever moving quickly!!

I bought myself some tulips to celebrate finishing school. Now I am a dental assistant, and all I need is a job...

First Crocus

Yesterday morning, I saw the first crocus in my garden.
When I got home in the afternoon, it was open!

Coleus Leaves

One advantage to being home in the morning now, is that I get to see the sunshine coming through the windows. 
I love the way these coleus leaves look in that sunlight!

We had about 4 inches of snow Sunday, so yesterday, I got outside to capture the delicacy of the flakes, before the sun melted all the edges.
And this is my front yard. That mountain at the end of the driveway is still about 4 feet tall.
On a positive note, I heard a robin while I was walking to the bus stop yesterday.

Cranesbill images from last summer
I love the way the blossoms change with age.
I managed to capture a bee, too.

More images from last summer - feathers left in the grass...
I love the delicate details of feathers,
especially with dew drops!

Gloria doesn't like the flash of the camera, but she is very happy, otherwise. I am no longer shoving antibiotics down her throat, nor putting a warm wet compress on the area where her anal gland had an abscess. It turns out she does not like the acidophilus, either, but I can hide a bit in her food...

Miss Kitty doesn't like the flash, but she has not been sick, thank heavens!!

Tomato Flowers

Still hanging out in the photos of last summer. Do you blame me, when the wind chill this morning is -30?
I am part way through the practical part of my course. It is more fun than I had expected, but doing it means that I am that much closer to being out there, looking for a job...
