May 2018 – week 19

Welcome and thank you for joining me on this year’s project of taking/posting photos every day.

This week’s weather was so lovely & warm, at least until Friday, when we felt a decidedly chilly wind again. But the sun was out, so we really can’t complain.

Now onto this week’s photos:

May 6 – in the crook of the maple; something is growing, thanks to birds or squirrels.  I guess we will have to wait to see what it is; and if it survives.

May 7 – pussy willows! I went for an evening walk and saw these pretty pussy willows back-lit by the evening sun!

May 8 – spring stream; Scott’s Mill Creek is running well now, but in the summer it diminishes to a trickle or even nothing at all.

May 9 – new leaves; I love the bright hues of all the new leaves – bright green, bits of red, and as usual, I love how the sun accentuates them against the rest of the brush behind it.

May 10 – view from the top; another view of Scott’s Mill Creek. Here I am looking down over the waterfall. The sun & shadows really show off all the various colors of the water and rocks beneath.

May 11 – the promise of blooms; another shot of my lilac progress…these will be glorious white blooms.

May 12 – still beautiful after a week; I celebrated my birthday early in the week. This bouquet is still looking great! I love the pretty spring colors! It looks like they are being kissed by the morning sun.

I am living my dream life in the country! I love photography, travelling, cooking, baking and I even try my hand at quilting.

    1. Thank you, Grace – I’m just catching up a bit on a quite evening on vacation – my aunt has just gone to bed early. May has always been my favourite month, even without my birthday.
