First Flowers of the Year

I celebrated finally finishing my taxes by spending Sunday afternoon, bundled up against the drizzle, clearing dead leaves and stalks out of my flower garden and I couldn’t have been happier. Few things are more satisfying than uncovering new growth after a long and dreary winter. I’m looking forward to many more hours of getting dirt under my fingernails! 🙂

First Hummingbird Of The Season

Even when nothing else is blooming in my garden just yet, I can always count on this little guy to be there, sipping from his favorite flower. Warmer weather has rekindled my interest in artistic photography. I’m looking forward to a long summer of opportunities to discover beauty.
