We've had some unusual weather here. Winter was non-existent and spring has been strange with many above average days in Feb and March then it got cold in April. Unfortunately, the fruit trees are confused and they began blooming then got hit by frost.
My Magnolia tree had the same problem. You can see by the photos where the frost turned the blossoms brown.
How is the weather affecting your region?
He's an old grouchy guy, suffering from arthritis and doesn't like the stairs but still comes to say hi.
As you can see I took a day off from painting and art. My computer at work has a virus so I couldn't use it even to check on Zazzle and I was there for a 10hr day but we had beautiful, sunny weather so instead, I found lots of excuses to go outside and watch the birds.
Magpies, hawks, quail and starlings were everywhere and there was even a couple pairs of swallows trying desperately to find a nest building site.
I am hoping to capture a photo of the Marmots that live on my work site. They are incredibly brave and friendly until I bring out the camera. Why do telephoto lenses have to make so much noise when they open?
Hope you all had a great weekend and some rest too.
