This tiny apple is just beginning to ripen. You can see a little touch of red on the top. I photographed this one on one of our smaller apple trees we planted a couple of years back. It takes new trees a while to start producing. Hopefully we’ll have a crop this year.
I captured this dandelion growing in the shade of our backyard hedge. It looks so bright and radiant with that beautiful yellow in contrast with the dark shade of the hedge. That blurred yellow spot in the background is a second dandelion.
Our honey suckle vine is now producing brilliant red flowers. The ruby throat humming birds and the bees love them. The bunch in the photo above will open soon.
Last year, we planted several vines of morning glories. We noticed a small morning glory vine creeping up our chain link fence a little while back, but only this morning did we notice this magnificent purple morning glory in its splendor. I’m hoping the vine will continue to produce flowers.
These blackberries look so yummy! That big one in the middle looks like it’s almost ripe!
These tiny white flowers just now reached full bloom. They are so beautiful.
I found this tiny green bug crawling sitting some of our tree leaves. I snapped several pictures of him before he flew away.
I captured these drops of sap tricking down the side of a pine tree in my back yard.
Yesterday was the first day of spring, and it was warm! Wildflowers are sprouting up everywhere. I found this one growing beside on of our grapevines.
Snap and shoot cameras don’t do so good for action shots, but I managed to capture this helicopter as it was coming in for a land at its station in front of the Gateway Arch.
I captured this sap trickling down the side of a pine tree yesterday.
The thermal features where some of the most interesting things in Yellowstone. I remember seeing the Old Faithful geyser erupt at least twice! The photos above are some of the boil pools near the Old Faithful Geyser. They all put out a very peculiar smell.
