I’m up to my ears in web design projects right now, but I figured if I didn’t get these Spring photos posted, it might be Summer before I come up for a deep breath!

We’ve been fighting our share of wind, rain, and coolish temperatures, but Mother Nature knows it’s time to put on her striking glory. See if you don’t agree:

My Camera Loves Spring

“The day the Lord created hope was probably the same day he created Spring.”

There, now, don’t you feel better? I know I do!

Happy Easter!

I’ve got a case of the lazies right now (let’s just call it Spring Fever!). It’s hard to be inside working when the sunshine is calling, birds are chirping, and nature beckons.

Here’s hoping everyone has a beautiful Easter!

I think this is a rhododendron

No clue what this is, but it's a mass of lilac-colored blooms!
