So . . . Flowers and Stuff (birds, bugs) . . .
Yes, the magnolia tree is blooming . . . and covering the ground with the remnants of the brown coverings of the flowers.
The photos can be seen full-size in the SmugMug Gallery HERE.<<<This is a link You can also click on the individual photos for a larger version in a new tab or window.
Here are a couple of additional magnolia flowers, and yes, these were shot right after it rained (as were many of the other shots).
Of course . . . I got me some geraniums . . .
Again, I don’t remember the name of these next flowers, but they are currently one of my favorites.
Next up, a song sparrow taking a bath . . .
He did a pretty good job of splashing water around . . . almost as good as a good rain . . .
I could have captured some frames from this next video, but I thought the photos were good enough . . .
So, then, I went and checked how the flowers were doing after the drenching they got . . . and, yes, the earlier photos also had raindrops, but those were from an earlier shower.
The fly and tiny white flowers look like they escaped the rain.
This year, we tried some New Guinea Impatiens at the front entrance . . .
They are doing pretty well . . . as are the Stella D’Oro.
OK, that’s an older one, but it still looks OK.
Let me wrap this up with a few more photos . . .
