Our World Tuesday and Nature Notes: Happy Easter Happy Spring

The photographs in this post were taken from last Sunday to this Saturday.


I'm going to set this up to auto post on Sunday because I will be focusing on feasting that day.


As it is I'm early for both Our World and Nature Notes as usual but I find it easier to prepare these posts over the weekend.


The first seven shots in this post are from last Sunday.


Bill and I went to Lake Jordan in part to see if we could spot the bald eagles.


No luck with eagle spotting but it was a nice drive as well as walk.


It was a beautiful day but quite chilly. 


The next batch of shots are from a lunchtime walk this week.


It was a perfect day to take a break and get outside.


There are a lot of spring flowers in bloom.


Everyday something changes, a tree start with tiny leaves or flowers, a new bird call is heard . . .


I love changing seasons.


I wouldn't want to live somewhere that didn't have 4 seasons.


Sometimes our seasons get mixed up but there are always changes which I like.


The rest of the shots are from a neighborhood walk this Saturday.


Sometimes I wonder what people in my neighborhood think if they see my camera pointing at their house.


Actually a lot of my neigbors know what to think because we've discussed that I like to photograph birds and flowers, etc.


I try to be careful not to photograph people unawares.


I like how there are still some naked trees as well as ones clothed in flowers and new leaves.


I like spotting flowers in the winter browns.


This post is getting long but it's hard to narrow down the shots I want to use.


The dogwoods are starting to bloom, both pink and white ones.


The next shot shows how we are in a changing season phase.

Hi! Nice collection of beautiful photos. The dogwood trees have not bloomed here. I enjoyed your photos very much. Thanks for sharing.

Happy Easter, Carver! I like the wide angle of many of these shots! It gives a fuller view of the neighbourhood trees and homes and shows a more complete tapestry of your lovely corner of the world.

OH I love all the shots - I think lots of pictures are great - love to see what others are seeing. Our dogwood hasn't started blooming yet - but I think soon.

You got so many great shots, I especially like the blooming trees, they give me nostalgia for southern scenery. Fun places to walk for nature shots, too.

Isn't Spring just the best of seasons. Great series of photos.

Perfectly shows the transition season (and I do miss it). Hope you had a wonderful Easter.

I love the pink tones in several of your pictures -- the tulips and the one brilliant pink tree among the still bare ones.
