With the prospect of watching gymnasts at the forthcoming Summer Olympics, I thought that this Ring-billed Gull nailed it.
Here are some more photos of Crocuses I took yesterday.
Yesterday our local temperature climbed to 80°F (26.67°C), the highest ever recorded for March 26th. Any snow still on the ground has already melted a few days earlier, and the crocus flowers wasted no time in coming up and bearing vibrant flowers. Here are some shots of those at the front of our driveway.
I am writing this as a Nor’easter is raging outside, dumping rain and snow, with strong winds added to the misery. Keep safe, all of you who are affected by it!
A few days ago, some brave Crocuses were starting to bloom in the mild weather we experienced for a few days.
Inside, the Orchid and Amaryllis are in full bloom, with no bud left that has not opened up yet.
The Spring flowers survived the cold for several nights and as of today they still proudly display their colors. Even the magnolia trees are in full bloom, this afternoon I only had enough time to photograph crocuses and daffodils.
Not to be outdone, the Daffodils, with the help of a late afternoon sun, were at their most vibrant yellow.
