On my walk to my office this morning I spotted this spunky flower growing up through the sidewalk crack. It looks to me like a dandelion but albino – or even more different, because it almost looks clear. I thought it was fascinating.
We have many varieties of daffodil and they bloom at different times, so we have them for many weeks. One of my favorites just started blooming – I don’t know the real name, but I call it the sunburst daffodil. It’s so dense with petals that the taller ones tip over from the weight.
The frogs are being quite shy lately – and it appears Brave Frog may have already moved out. I went out to shoot some photos of Cave Frog (I think) and I got in only one quick snap before he dove under the water. Since I had the camera out anyway, I decided to take some photos of our water lilies. When we first had the pond and waterfall installed, I didn’t think we would put anything in it. I’m glad my husband pushed for plants (then fish…) because it makes it a lot more interesting to look at when we are outside. There are some new plants I put in this year that should be blooming soon – when they do I will post photos of those. But for now, I really love this close up of a water lily – I didn’t know the damselfly was there playing peekaboo until I transferred the photo to my computer!
As I was moving away I realized the water and sun were collaborating to make a gorgeous reflection – so I took that photo too.
