Spring Pics

Thought I would share a few pics from my corner of the world. It is beautiful weather here in the Southwest desert. I spent some time weeding, trimming and just enjoying the wonderful weather. There was lots of sun and as I was working I notice the wonderful textures and shadows so grabbed the camera. BE sure to go to the bottom as I have saved the BEST for last!!

A couple sunflowers came up in the peas and their cheery faces are lifted to greet the sun.

One of the bell peppers ripening, had some water drops on it.

The bright yellow flowers on the tomatoes were such a cool compliment to the green leaves

This one of my fun cactus covered with tons of babies. The way the sun was hitting on this one almost makes it look like a flower doesnt it??

Check these out~~~
The Hummers were twitting and diving about and suddenly I notice one flying into the tree and WOW there was a nest. Is this toooo cool of a shot of her on the little nest. It is not even as big as your thumb. Look how perfectly woven it is. My camera doesnt have a lot of zoom power so I got on a ladder to get a closer shot.

Oh Davi, I wish this were the view out my window. We had rain on Saturday, then snow up to my knees on Sunday! Which I had to shovel as my husband was out of town with the boys!. Thanks for the inspiration.

Your pictures are so wonderful...all of them but especially the little humming bird and nest! So cool! We are having nothing but 30's, melting snow and gray, gray, gray skies! Very depressing. Almost makes me want to make an all gray card...but not quite! LOL!

Love and blessings, Martha

Davi, the pictures are just beautiful. I love the little nest. It is so fascinating to see how the birds weave their nests. Oh, it is just so warm where you're very fortuate. I'm in the south but the southeast certainly isn't warm enough to be growing veggies.
Thanks for sharing these wonderful photos.

Your pictures are gorgeous and I'm a bit jealous about the weather :). It;s still cold here and I am sooooo ready for spring.
