The yellow flowers were blooming again. From across the lake, I could see the alligator swimming around.
I’m not sure what was going on with these 2. The great egret let the alligator get pretty close. The alligator looked like he was ready to take a bite. He finally slid back down under the water and left the egret alone.
I caught this great blue heron with a fish in the bushes along the lake.
It looks like all of the alligators were trying to blend in.
My Mom loved dogwood flowers. We had several in our yard when I was growing up.
Bright yellow everywhere.
Getting a bite. My sister had just fed her fish in the koi pond in her backyard.
Beautiful pine trees along the edge of the yard.
My sister and her husband have spent a lot of time working in their back yard. We were there in late March and the spring blooms were just starting to come out. Their yard looks like a botanical gardens, with flowers, bushes, benches, bird feeders, bird houses and two fish ponds. The thing I noticed the most was the dogwood trees. We don’t have them here in central Florida and I hadn’t seen any during my quick trip to Birmingham. She had several in her yard and it made me think of my Mom.
I wish I could say I was posting these to brighten up a cold winter night but since it’s been sunny and 83 degrees so far this month here in Florida I guess I can’t use that excuse. Other than I was just playing around with my macro lens. I had gotten flowers for Bosses Day back in October and had taken them home over the weekend. I never miss a chance to take pictures of flowers in the house. And if you do live where it’s dark and cold, I hope they cheer you up.
