    These are some pix of some of the plants that are blooming around my place today. It's so awesome to see spring hitting it's stride!

    Most of my tulips are past their prime now but this one is still fresh. The only one I have like this...

    Yay! thistle has flowers! Love them. When ever I'm walking with my granddaughter she's always looking for dandelions. I always think of your meadow of dandelions and what fun she would have there. :)

    @thistlebloom, never would I have thought to photograph a budding rhubarb plant. Your pictures are lovely.

    I am glad she did. I've never seen a live rhubarb plant. Your educating me, thistle.

    That hummingbird is beautiful. We have ruby throats around here, never got a shot of one of them. I was almost hit by one when two males were fighting.

    Somewhere around here I have a pic of a humming bird hanging upside down, by his feet, on the feeder rails. He looks kind of like a dead mouse, but is participating in a royal battle with another hummer, preparing for attack. They are so acrobatic!

    Pretty photos. Love the hummer. He looks very much like the ruby throats we have around here.
