Saturday Random Photos

The flower trees are blooming and thank goodness I don’t have allergy. We walk around my dad’s neighborhood today to photograph the flowers.

I think it’s very distracting to drive during this time of the year. I have to keep reminding myself to keep my eyes on the road.

I finally see some squirrels running around, this one is searching for food.

I think this is a bird feeder.

Shooting directly into the sun is problematic for me when it’s hard to see to focus, even when during golden hour.

Back inside, this is the reason why I have to exercise. My second sister loves to make dessert and I can’t resist.

My dad started planting his seedlings, it’s still too cold to plant a garden outside.

My mom’s Orchid is in the 7th week of blooming. My second sister bought one to see if she has a green thumb when it comes to orchid.  I also bought one and will post it when I find a right spot for it.

    • Hi Gerry, the weather is nice here and with the time change I’ll have more time to spend in my garden now. Since it’s still cold there, I hope you will enjoy my photos for now. 🙂

  2. This looks like a beautiful day with family. Right now the only images I can think of is disaster in Japan. It’s so tragic there. 😦

    But lovely photos here as always. We also have blooming Bradford pear trees out west. It’s about vanished now and being replaced by small leaves.

    That bird feeder is interesting… looks like Asian lantern.

    • Hi Cambree, it’s heart wrenching to watch and it keeps getting worse as the story unfold. 😦

      Most of the flower trees in our area are in bloom now and they’re calling for rain Tomorrow, hopefully there will be some left on the tree by Wednesday.
