Trees, Turtles and Tulips

 My favorite trees are in bloom. The blooms usually only last a week or so, and it's been so rainy this week that I haven't gotten to enjoy them much.








Last weekend we went for a walk at a wildlife preserve. The sun was out and so were the many turtles.





And more tulips...because I took so many photos. If you missed the last post, go HERE to see my favorite shots from my visit to the tulip farm.

Tulips

We live about an hour away from a tulip farm, and each spring they open their fields to the public. I don't go every year, but do try to keep it in the regular rotation. It's breathtaking and amazing to walk through the fields and see so many varieties of tulips....impossible to choose a favorite. The weather was gorgeous the day we went - sunshine and blue skies! 







Because I've been several times and each time I take hundreds of photos, I was looking for a new way to capture the beauty of the tulips this year. I  noticed the reflection of the tulips in the many puddles and began trying to capture them. I really love how some of these turned out.

Family / Music Pics

With our upcoming gigs scheduled for summer, it felt like it was time to update some of our photos. Most of our family photos are taken by setting the camera on the tripod, but I didn't want that this time. So we asked a friend to come with us and snap some photos of us.

Daily Walks

It's that time of year when I do my best to get outside daily for a walk or run - or sometimes both! Everyday there is something new to see, and I just can't get enough of the blooms and new growth. I hope you are enjoying the beauty in your neighborhood as well.
