May be one or 2 still blooming here, but spring is about done and early summer is upon us. It was 91F yesterday.

Have you ever see those pictures of ordinary sized crocodiles, that look huge because of how close the camera is located to the croc in relation to everything else in the photo?

I'm working on it!.. I have to see what I have that's recent and what I have from years ago.. I have a lot of pictures.

Right now the hawthorns and false orange bushes are blooming... can smell them from a mile away, it's a nice smell but it's sooo strong it's just about too much to handle

When I was very young and in school, I had to memorize and recite this poem. I've never forgotten it, and think of it every time I see a field of red flowers.

I have lots, but, I cannot send you a pic in a private message, as the "post image" function is no longer there for me.

I'd be glad to e-mail you one.
