I had no intention of posting today because I put together over the weekend a nice itinerary of posts for this coming week, all nice and tidy, ready to go to begin on Monday, not Sunday. Then today, as I made my usual run to the barn next door, I was stopped in my tracks. And I mean stopped.
There in front of my disbelieving eyes I saw my early Spring bulbs beginning to come up! Friends, this is January 31st, and it is unheard of for bulbs to be bursting free of dirt at this time of the year. My Daffodils and Crocuses have begun to bloom almost one and half months early. What this coming Spring is going to be like I have no idea, but I just had to post these pictures today to show you, yes I really do have bulbs coming up in my garden.
The shot of the Cardinal on our feeder was taken through my kitchen window with my Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 on full zoom. I caught that Cardinal with his mouth full of seeds. Is it my imagination or are his colors very bright for it still being Winter here?
The other two images were shot with my Canon and my EF 100mm f/2.8 macro lens. Pinch me. Am I dreaming? I sure feel like it. I have lived in this part of the world for almost my entire life and I have never seen this phenomenon in my gardens ever before. Was it coincidence that I chose for some of my coming posts for the week, early Spring flowers before I “knew” what was happening in my gardens? I think not!
