Sparrows and Daffodils 4/4/14

Flashback Wednesday, April 4, 2012 – This is my photo of the day and shows the silhouette of trees with a very broody, yet painterly precipitating sunset clouds. I love this photo because it is just so mood provoking and looks like watercolours. The rain coming down is beautiful, too.

April 4, 2012 sigFlashback Thursday, April 4, 2013 – This is my pick photo for today and it stars a squash (or mason) bee. These are nesting in a neighbor’s yard and I went down to try and find out if they were going to use chemicals on their yard this year. I’m hoping that they will keep their habitat as there are a number of them nesting in the same area. Native pollinators are something I have always been interested in and cared deeply about. I hope my neighborhood activism helps these pollinating friends survive!  (Note from 4/4/14/: This is actually a leaf-cutting bee species and the neighbor’s had lawn treatment so we’ll have to see if there are any this year, though none so far.)

April 4, 2013 sigFriday, April 4, 2014 – Today was mostly overcast, though it didn’t rain.  Here are a couple of little sparrows, neighborhood daffodils, and one tiny little miniature iris.
