Spring Snapshots

I’m obsessed with our yard right now.

When I went home for lunch today, it was so warm and sunny, I couldn’t believe it’s still only April. I spent most of the hour outside with my camera.

I’m not sure what kind of blossoms these are. Peach? Plum? This tree bore fruit last year but the bugs got a hold of it and what they left behind was not recognizable. I sprayed and fertilized it early this year so I’m hoping to at least make a positive identification soon.

I like all of our backyard birds but doves are my least favourite among them. They brand themselves the bird of peace but I just don’t like the cut of their jib. There’s something untrustworthy in those beady eyes. I know this one is waiting for me to turn my back so he can crap on my car. Bastard.

Our lilacs are about to burst. I LOVE the smell of lilacs in the spring!

  1. Great photo’s. The smell of lilacs in the spring time is one of my favourite smells, right along side holiday dinners at someone else’s house:)

  2. Oh my god – I just laughed out loud about the bird crapping on your car.

    And agree about the lilacs. One of my favourite smells!
