Daffodil yellow colored tree

Among the old bare oak trees this daffodil yellow colored tree stood.  I did not know how or why it was there...but since it was Easter I almost expected Easter bunnies with pastel colored bows to be dancing about....

Spring wildflower -- Terrarium

When this wildflower Terrarium emerges in my back yard, I know that it is spring. Right now it is still very small, but it will grow to be about 8 inches tall and it will cover most of my back yard. Every year I fight with my hubby to make sure that he does not mow them down before they are totally done flowering. My hubby always loses.

Carpet of Daffodiles

Spring is nearly here and that we can expect to see the Daffodiles blooming soon. This photographed just received a Honorable Mention at the Mayslake Photography competition. Last year this image recieved 2nd place at the Union League of Chicago photography competition as well..... I do have a confession to make, this image was photographed using my Canon G9, small camera, not my Nikon DSLR. That just goes to show you that it does not matter what equipment you use, but the composition and the light of the day that makes the image...
