from the sublime to the ridiculous

I had the good fortune of being able to walk under blue skies and sun instead of pouring rain for a change. Along the way I had wildlife pose for me. This young buck is one of two that come farther up the hill to our bird feeders looking for a free meal. The delight du jour here was tree.
Dandelion and visitor soaking up the sun.

I've only seen this variety of salmon colored azalea in this particular yard and look forward to their arrival each spring.
Here are two Canada geese raising a ruckus on top of  condos across the street from us. Territorial issues I'm guessing.
Happy Wednesday from Anytown, Minnesota!

Hi Noni
I always love seeing what you're sharing with us. The salmon color on that azalea is wonderful I can see why you look forward to its bloom every year. At first glance I thought it was a Japanese Maple tree - it has the graceful form. We've had loads of rainy days here but I think the pattern is about to change. With a snow-less winter the rain was welcome in the eyes of the farmers. My brother has all his corn planted and most of the beans. I love the new look here. happy day to you Noni. always a pleasure.

Donna said... the geese!
Glad the sun finally came out for you! Nothing better after a long bout with the rain...
Sweet evening!

Hi Noni,

There is something about dandilions an buttersflies that just yells "summer!".

I would if there is some particular element in the soil that contributes to that particular azalea color.
