It’s the best time of year to go out on the patio with my camera. All the pots are abloom. Here’s a sampling . . .
The cactus, hardly eight inches across, is still producing. Here’s a bloom from a little distance . . .
And here’s the same bloom up close.
The little Canon point-and-shoot does a good job with close-ups. First, a peach daylily . . .
And here, its close-up.
These yellow petunias bloom all summer long.
And a gold.
But of the pictures I got today, I think I like this mini-rose bud best of all.
I stayed busy today, getting Bella up and working her — Sarah climbed on and off a few times — and cleaning up a very old horse who needed it badly. I curried until I couldn’t hold my arms up any more, and still had plenty of hair left to work on. I’ll get back to him in a day or two. I think he would have enjoyed it, except we were both dodging the season’s first horsefly.
It’s not only flowers that come out in the spring.
