It's finally here!!

We have had 3 beautiful spring days in a row!! Sunny and in the 60's with a nice breeze. I hung my spring wreath that my daughter made a couple years ago, on the front door.
According to the forecast it will get cooler (50's) and rain but that's what spring is all about. I've worked outside a little. The antibiotic I'm on says not to be in the sun. Tomorrow is my last day on it.
I have cleaned up 4 small beds, raked and reseeded a portion of lawn, and cleaned the eaves on a second story roof.
I'm trying to get good at macro shots. I have a tendency to get too close and get a blurry picture. I'm sure glad I don't have to buy film and have it developed!
I think I got some pretty good shots today of the bees in the crocus.
I have a hard time getting yellow crocus.
There are 2 blooming today. Hopefully there are more to come. I think the rabbit ate them last year.
Has spring sprung at your house?

Great macros, Jean..
If only I had a bloom or two to try the setting on.
Glad you are doing better.

Well Spring IS arriving here...but very slowly! lol Still lots of snow to go yet but at least it's disappearing a bit every day. We're supposed to get another rainstorm tonight so that will help even more. I so love the shots you took of your crocuses...so clear and bright!! I've got crocus buds planted but they're still under snow so not sure how they will do this year. xox

Great pics, Jean! Now, just one question: When can you get over to my place to make those beautiful crocus grow in my garden? lol
On a serious note, sprint is my very favorite time of year and I'm glad it's finally getting here for all of us! Wishing you a great and blessed week.

Oh, your Spring flowers look wonderful. It was warmer today, but I haven't seen too many flowers yet, just a few buds. Karen

Love your spring blooms! Spring is really here in CA, in fact we're supposed to get down right hot this weekend!

Isn't it just wonderful to have some blooms? I have one little bunch of daffodils blooming.

We actually sat on the porch today.....sigh.....
