Right about that time...

Spring is so here! I brought the camera out for the first time this season, and took a few pictures of the dew drops from all the recent rain.
Rose of Sharon, Blue Satin, overwintered in the basement.

Draecaena, a $2 steal on clearance, and lived happily in the playroom most of winter.

You may recall each summer I make great efforts to get a few good shots of the hummingbirds. I knew from maps and news they were already here in MN, but I had not seen one yet. I was merely snapping pictures of this droopy rhododendron's flowers when I saw this little angle fly into the shot. 3 clicks, and a quick switch of camera modes, and ta-da--- one of the best hummingbird shots I've ever taken.
Yay spring!

I just bought a small Hosta at Lowes called Dream Queen. I enjoyed your garden photos.
