Sunday

WOO HOO! It's 56 degrees and the snow is melting and the bedraggled remnants of my snowbound garden showed themselves today. I am psyched! Time to post some cheerful photos taken last Spring with a look toward the Spring to come.

Splendidly beautiful! The pansies just melt me. Yesterday was 60 here, and I was out in it too, snapping birds, chickens and the birch tree.

Thank you Ruth & Greg. My husband took these in our garden last Spring. I love the pansies too as I planted them and care for them. These are the little ones, violas.

Beautiful pictures! :)
I hope to be able to buy some pansies for my balcony soon, but will probably have to wait another two or three weeks.

I would love to frame that pansy pic. Wow!

Susan said...

Violas are my favorite flower! I just love their little faces! My mom always had an old dishpan filled with them. She called them Johnny-jump-ups. Beautiful photos!

My husband is creating a site where you may purchase the photos via internet. They won't be expensive and he will offer matting and/or framing, I think.

He is very excited about it as he's had so much feedback so we're going ahead.

Once he's ready, I'll let everyone know in a blog post.

The pics are gorgeous! Love the pansies so much. Supposedly pansies bring "heart's ease and heart's desire."

Let it be so!

Reye: Heart's Ease or Heart's Desire would make a great title for the pansey photo. I think the water droplets create an incredible feeling of freshness, dewiness, youth 9where am I going with this?)

Star said...

Yes, the pics are gorgeous and I would like to know which camera he uses?
Blessings, Star

Hi Star: He used a Canon S3IS. Thank you for the nice comment. My husband cherishes every positive remark on his photography. He is getting so into it now, turning professional. I'm excited for him.
