Flashback Thursday, March 1, 2012 – I baked this lovely loaf of bread today, March 1st, and you can see poblano chiles and tomatoes in the background ready for roasting.
Flashback, Friday, March 1, 2013 – This is my pick and only photo for today and it stars my neighbor’s Buddha in the sun.
Saturday, March 1, 2014 – March has roared in like a lion with wind, thunder and rain. I’ve always enjoyed March and today the first flowers on my street opened. These flowers live by the Buddha from the 2013 photo.
In the afternoon before it was raining, though the wind was blowing and the sun peeped out here and there, the bees came for pollen.
The wind did not deter them nor did grey skies when the clouds covered the sun. I was lucky that the sun came out here and there as they were flying around so busily while being buffeted by the wind.
Pretty flowers in the sun with fallen hawthorn berries.
Here’s someone enjoying berries left still on the tree.
Here’s a pollen face.
This one was so covered with pollen she was trying to take shelter (though still being blown around by the wind) to try and scrape pollen into her baskets.
