March 12 through July 6, 2021

Since I'm starting with March, my neck of the woods has changed a lot since the initial shots in this post.

My goal has been to post at least once a season so I can look back and remind myself of what my world looked like during each season.

In practice it's more like overlapping seasons.

Overlapping seasons makes a certain amount of sense because the NC piedmont where I live is one of those places where if you don't like the weather, stick around a day and it will change.

Weather changes are particularly welcome in the summer when many days are too hot for me.

The photographs so far are from March, 2021.

Starting with the next shot we're moving into April.

The American Robins are always entertaining on my deck.

I watch the birds as much as ever but don't seem to photograph them as much.

My monster azaleas continue to attempt to grow as tall as the trees.

Starting with the shot above, the next batch of shots is April 2021 at Shelley Lake.

The rabbit below was frozen while I was standing at my kitchen door.

Below is another batch of shots from Shelley Lake. These are later April.

You can tell by the picnic table in the lake that we had a wet April, 2021

The next few shots were taken on a different day at the end of April.

The next two shots are April 27, 2021 in my backyard where I've been growing a forest for quite a while now.

Moving into May I caught some lovely skies at Shelley Lake.

The shot below makes me think of the song with the line "old friends sat on their park bench like bookends." Thank you Simon and Garfunkel.

The next two shot are from the last day of May and I enjoyed the reflections.

The shot below made me think: the family that bikes together stays together.

Trying to create a path in my backyard uncovered signs from when I used to garden.

Lately Bill and I have been walking on the shady paths on the other side of the Shelly Lake dam and skipped the hotter walk around the lake.

I have been on a July walk but forgot my camera and didn't get my cell phone camera out fast enough to photograph a young buck with small velvety looking antlers but I recall what it looked like without a photograph.

What a wonderful collection of your photos, Carver! I enjoyed looking at each one but was drawn particularly to the compositions of the people walking up the hill and the couple on the bench as well as the empty bench under a big sky. Very artistic, indeed. As always, nice to see you posting and seeing that you are well. :))

I'm always so glad to see your posts; you pack in so much beauty. The spring posts (especially your March one) makes me remember how being here in Oregon and seeing those same Spring flowers was a big blessing to our "Covid Year". This time, I didn't have to be jealous of other people's spring, which is non-existent in Florida. NC seems to have pretty much the same seasons as Oregon, except maybe earlier blooms. And the green loveliness is similar also. I loved your walks.
