Day 74

A walk outside checking on my spring plants budding was just up my alley. Lots of growth! Especially when you've been watching every day, you notice when things start to take a bit of a turn in the right direction. Soon they should be busting open.. I'll add a couple that have showed improvement from last posts.

tulips getting taller, and the tippy tops eaten by bunnies

Oh, Kara, I LOVE that first picture! The simple colors make it so beautiful, and I think you chose a great aperture for it!

Thank you for your comment on my post a few days ago. You asked what I miss most from the US. Really, what I miss most is having a Walmart or Target to go to where I know I can find just about anything I'm looking for. Oftentimes here I don't know where to go to find certain things. For instance, perhaps you noticed in the picture my MIL had brought icecube trays. That's because after 3 months of looking, I couldn't find any!:)

I love all your shots, but that first shot is simply stunning. Great color, great composition, and great dof!
