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...

Daylilies from last summer, captured in the late afternoon sun...
sun and warmth - they feel like a distant memory...

Castor Beans

Still working on the photos from last summer - 
these are macros from a castor bean plant.
For such a huge plant, the flowers are tiny.

Mrs. Mouse

My Mom took a class in leatherworking, the year before I was born, and she continued with the hobby for many years. She must have made this mouse, with her baby in a walnut shell carrier, about 20 years ago.

A hollyhock from last summer.

I have finished my exams, and I have a final average of 85%. I have another week of classes, about resumes and stuff, and then two weeks of practical, and I will be done...

I like all the little hairs on the bud of the sunflower
and the way the light comes through the petals
