Just about a year ago, we moved into an old turn-of-the-(20th)-century home that needed (and still needs) a lot of work. We’ve been making slow progress, and with the exception of some initial and very necessary construction to remodel the very rundown kitchen and a few other improvements, doing most of the work ourselves. But one of the things we began work on almost as soon as we moved in was the gardens. Here are just some of the early Spring flowers (photos shot May 5, 2013)
Some spring photos from my yard.
A Great Crested Flycatcher collecting materials for a nest. This was a first time sighting for me. So glad the camera was sitting out on my desk so I could grab the shot.
Using the macro feature on my 70-300 lens –
A Trillium from my garden
A yellow spring flower, name forgotten
I love photographing the birds who visit our backyard, and once the flowers bloom, I start messing around with different ways of looking at the garden. This week, I was also experimenting with the new lens I got (bought) for my birthday.
Here’s a selection of recent pics.

Plus one random child photo 🙂
