We usually do not get these kinds of mornings in the Spring unless the evening before brought stormy weather which it had. Soon the clouds went their merry way leaving a cloudless blue sky and unusually warm temperatures. This was taken last week. Just a sky shot. Nothing much else to see. The ground had not yet been turned in preparation for spring planting. That will happen toward the end of this month and early June when the first crop of sunflowers will go in. To say I am eagerly awaiting their arrival would be an understatement. Thanks for the look and have a great weekend.
The pinched nerve in my neck is beginning to ease up a bit giving some respite from the pins and needles tingling in my arms and hands. The root of my problem was sitting at this computer tilting my head back and up in order to view the screen via progressive bifocals. Not Good. I’m having a pair of single vision computer glasses made up (I never knew there was such a thing) and hopefully they will be on my nose by the weekend. If you spend a lot of time at the computer processing pictures, or writing or whatever and wear bifocals of some stripe, you might think about getting a pair. They will save you untold agony. Have a great evening and thanks for the look
White azaleas are always a challenge for me. The problem is getting the white balance right. I ttried all of the presets and none really measured up. It was either too yellow or dingy or gray. I decided to try getting a custom white balance right from the blooms. I often resort to this when shooting indoors and not wanting to use a flash but this was a first outside. I was so pleased I thought I would post it, sore neck not withstanding. Thanks for the visit and have a great evening
A Close Up of a clump of Lady Banks Roses. A spectacular spring vine, this one is thriving on an Arbor here on the farm.
Here’s the lowdown on this plant. It has no thorns, no pests that I’m aware of. Climate: Hardy to plant in Zone Seven. Blooms in spring. Comes in white or yellow roses. I prefer the yellow. Plant in moist, well drained soil. Water Regularly until established. Full sun to partial shade. These will grow large so don’t plant in a small space.
An aside: I won’t be posting every day as in the past because of the need to cut back on my screen time due to a pinched nerve in my neck complicated by a touch of arthritis. As they say, getting old ain’t for sissies. Thank you for the visit and have a great evening.
