Unexpected sunshine and blue skies greeted us this morning. A quiet thunderstorm had passed over us before dawn. The landscape was left damp with beads of water standing on the fresh green of young spring flowers pushing up to herald spring. After a few errands She decided to root around a bit in the flower beds. I changed the bird feeders, putting away that providing for high demand, leaving only the thistle seed feeder and one for suet — our spring and summer selection. Tiny and beautiful flowers (Iris reticulata) were in full bloom and posing for admirers and photographers. I retrieved my camera with macro lens and did a little shooting. It was wonderful to be out enjoying the day and to forget about car shopping. I work this afternoon, however, so I heaved a sigh and went indoors for lunch and to dress for the office. It's spring and this isn't a car blog.
