Buds and Spring Flowers

This is what I was up to on Monday.
The sun was shining,
it was glorious,

So,after reading up on the manual,
I took the new camera outside,
for a walk.

We didn't go far.
In the garden to begin with,
to take another look at the crocus I showed you on Sunday.
There they are,
still sitting in the brown grass.
But this time I used the macro facility.
Much better,
as I'm sure you'll agree.

A bit further afield,
towards the forest,
in the long grass,
and there are the wild flowers
(Wood Anemones I think).
Each morning when I go out
there are a few more.

Not so many of these yellow flowers,
no doubt from the Dandelion family.

Then there are the buds.
I don't recognise what it is though.

Couldn't resist taking a photo of the Little Yellow House.
Can you see a bird peeking out from the far side?
A Green Finch I think.

In the afternoon
I took a walk up the hill
with Mike.
Where there are always lovely views
no matter what the weather.
It had dulled over a little.
Then I noticed
how the Birch trees are coming into leaf more here.
So I took a photo,
just for that fact alone.

Then we took a walk back home.
And in the rough grass
I saw some of the first Daffodils,
It's nearly May!
I wonder if there are any more,
We'll have to wait and see.

Call back tomorrow
and see where we've got to,
the camera
and me.

Beautiful flowers. Your new camera takes wonderful photos. I envy you with all those spring bulbs coming up. We can grow freesias here. The picture of the dandelions reminded me of the name my son used to call them when he was little - 'daisylions' :)
