The Beauty of Nature

Ok -- to start things off, was I complaining about the rain, gray skies, etc. a couple of months ago?  I take it all back.  I want more rain!

I don't want torrential, flooding rains, just the nice, soft, pitter, patter, soak into the good Earth kindof rain.  Why oh why the change of heart?  Because everything is green and glorious!!!! Flowers are blooming, trees have budded out -- and it's just gorgeous (sans - the mowing the grass duties).

We were slightly ahead early in the year, and now we are slightly behind the average rainfall.  But, (fingers crossed) it looks like we will be treated to showers this weekend.

Before I get back to work -- here's a couple of pictures I shot today -- showcasing the beauty of nature -- all created by our magnificent God!

A Yellow Crested Night Heron that has made it's home in a tree in the front yard of my friend Carolyn's house.  He and his mate appear to be setting up home in one of the large trees.

Here's to a great weekend!

  2. Wow! Just look at that heron. God is a genius!

  3. You're first photo is amazing. I love the blurred background, the texture, the detail! Even the little drops on the petals are really distinct.
