I decided to gather up some pictures to remind me of what I look forward to in the Spring & Summer months. Hopefully this will help squash the Winter doldrums when it arrives again.

I'll start with some Wild Flowers that just appeared here. These Lily's sparkle like crazy in the sunlight!

Who can identify these flowers for me? They are growing next to a large Oak tree.

This is a Begonia that was near dead when Winter set in last year. I put it under a cheap-o LED panel and it came back to life and flowered in the little closet I had it in. The plant behind it is Rosemary.

Now for some good ol' veggies. Here we have Zucchini and Spaghetti Squash flowers:









And what do we do with all of those Zucchini flowers?

We cook em' up! This is a fond memory of visiting my Grandmother in the summer months. She would always make sure she cooked us up a snack in the afternoon, and it was usually these:

It took almost 3 years of waiting, but I saw my first grapes finally.

These next pictures were taken in Australia, near the city of Adelaide. I don't know the names of these flowers or trees, maybe somebody from AU can help identify them.
First up are some unusual shapes that reminded of what we used to call "Push Up Pops" ice cream treats. They have vanilla ice cream on top and orange sherbet on the bottom.

A little wildlife break. We have the fawn resting after a nice lunch, and then a possible Daddy munching a tree across my pond.

Let's not forget the Barnyard activities. Chickens get a little nervous when I head into the barn looking for eggs. If they aren't laying eggs, then they might have another purpose. Gets them thinking.






These two guys were always sparring for attention from the ladies:

My backyard Pergola is where I spend sunny days as I watch the wildlife in and about the pond.

I found this little guy when I was out for a calm down walk yesterday. Beautiful vibrant color pattern!

How about this mountain view? Great scenery!





Oh, wait a minute....let's take a closer look at that



It's actually a reflection on the pond when I was taking a pic of a bluegill coming off his bed.
