In Bloom

Thank you, thank you, thank you for your well wishes and congratulations that accompanied my last post. It's been crazy around here the past couple of weeks with a new life, but we're slowly slipping into some kind of routine and it feels good. (I tend to thrive in routine)  
Now, I'm not normally one of those people who spend time posting pictures of random natural occurrences, but I couldn't resist this time. My husband bought one of those DSLR cameras (I have no idea what that stands for, but I feel intelligent when I say it) and the macro function on that joker is da bomb. I did not know it was possible to take photos this close.
It's all beginning to bloom around here and the gorgeousness combined with the mild temperatures has found me outside pushing baby girl in stroller for short (and slow) walks.
Here, I'll share it with you:

This one is my favorite:
(I'm seriously considering Shutterflying it and framing it somewhere in my house)

These are actually berries from a holly bush (I know, very Christmas-y in April)

I need to go back out and check to see if this has bloomed yet:

This part of NC is known for its Azaleas and we've got them in all colors.

Does this remind anyone else of Alice in Wonderland? (The good 'ol Disney cartoon, not the Johnny Depp version)
Like I said, everything is in bloom.

Get out there and enjoy the Spring before it gives way to hot, humid and sweaty Summer.
That's an order!


  1. Great flower photos, Marcie! And I have to admit, as I was scrolling through them, I was hoping to be treated with a pic of your daughter!

  2. Piękne zdjęcia kwiatów, ale najpiękniejsze jest Twoje zdjęcie z dzieckiem :)
