Project 365 – April flowers and puddles

My dump of photos from the Vancouver trip superseded the usual 365 post last week, but I had a few that I snapped before I left and now a week’s worth since I got home, so I figured I’d cram them all together here.

These ones were snapped the weekend before I trundled off across the country. First, the first step in his career path to the NBA, courtesy of a discarded basketball net snagged from someone’s curb! (I love the yellow in the boots, the basketball stand and the jacket.)

Who knew on the first weekend in April I’d find not only flowers in my front garden, but flowers crawling with bees?! P.S. Have I mentioned that I love my new camera?

101:365 Bzzzzzzz

Again with the yellows. Can you tell I’m digging our emergence from the season of monochrome?

And then, it rained. And rained and rained. Apparently April showers beget April mud.

One of my favourite new pastimes is playing “Ooo, what’s this new thing growing in my garden?” Thanks to my Facebook and Flickr friends, I now know that I have puschkillia and scilla creeping across my lawn.

This is the most photogenic puddle I’ve ever encountered, as captured in the light of a barely-risen sun.

I liked it so much I went back for seconds!

And finally, a dose of cuteness from a quiet morning at the Manotick Public Library.

Don’t you love the bronze statue of the kids? And yes, he’s reading Where the Wild Things Are. How have I made it more than nine years into my parenting career and never read that book before? It’s our new family favourite!

Dani, I am in love with this photo set. The bee, and both puddle pics are beyond amazing.

I loved that puddle shot when you first showed it and never tire of it. This is one photo you should get hugely enlarged and hang in your home. The floral shots are great (love the bee in flight, you can even see his teeny legs and feet!) That statue right IN the library is beautiful. (Hate to admit this but I made it through all my years of parenting and never read Where the Wild Things Are to my kids! Hangs head in shame and promises to make it up with grand-kids)

I LOVE the first fence photo. LOVE!
And so cool to have that bench statue at your local library. So sweet šŸ™‚

That last comment was from me. Not sure where my name disappeared to.
