spring moments

Life gets busy sometimes, and when you look back, you really can't remember what you spent that time doing.

Spring, or as it ought to be known - winter lite - seems to have finally ended. Yes, I know, the calendar tells us that summer starts on 21 June. Well, over night we went from running the furnace to opening up the windows and turning on the fans. It's no longer less than 50˚ at night, and I no longer wear my coat to work. It's 70˚ in the morning, and humid as all get out. Yes, we went from winter-lite directly to summer, and that seems to be the way it happens every year.

So, I've been working on photos for my "sarahknight" etsy shop off and on & here and there. Sometimes the photos are old, sometimes the photos are shots I have taken recently. I've been in a "spring" kind of mood lately.

The first one is called "wide open spaces." This is the 'old' photo (yeah, it's like 4 years old, ha!).







The last 2 images are recent. I almost can't believe the dandelions already bloomed and turned to fluff already. Of course, there will be more and more of them for the rest of the summer... The last image is my first ladybug of the season. Yes, I know, it's really a multicolored asian lady beetle (Harmonia axyridis). Anyway, this little beetle was out in the yard sitting on the brand new butterfly bush I just planted. How sweet : ) Hopefully all bodes well for the bush.

As always, I invite you to check out my treasuries:

I really like the little frog but most of all I like the textures in each of the photos and how they come together so well to make the set.
