#116 of 365 for Sunday, April 28 2013

 We have just a few teeny tiny green leaves popping out now but not very many.  Yesterday was nice, warm, and sunny so hopefully in a few more days we will be seeing some more spring green here in Michigan.  I found this little bud while walking along the river.  I tried to shoot it outside but you can forget getting macro shots in windy Michigan.  I took a little branch with me and shot it in the car while waiting for DH to go in at Walmart.  Even in the car I had to put up the window because the wind was blowing through the car and making the little bud sway back and forth.

I have been trying to get  close to the swans without much success.  This is the closest I have been able to get.  Hopefully next time I can get closer.

This goose was swiftly swimming up the river but the sun was at the perfect angle to light up it's eye!

This little guy is still burying walnuts in my yard.  I don't ever remember seeing the squirrels bury nuts in the spring.  I don't have a walnut tree so I don't know where he is carrying them from.  He had just finished burying his walnut, then he stood on his back feet and watched me in the window.

I loved this sweet sourdough bread. It has raisins, dried cranberries, cherries, blueberries and walnuts in it and has a cream cheese glaze.

Yay! I finally have some tulips to shoot..... now to find some time to play with them. Of course to get tulips in Michigan this time of year they have to come from the store :)  But that is ok.

There is just something special about sitting by the river and watching the sun slip behind the horizon for the night.

Well I don't think I better try to take a walk by the river today :)  This is what one of the bridges I would need to cross over looked like yesterday.  You will have to look really close to see the bridge.  It is brown and the row of wooden posts on the left leads up to it.  Water is over it, due to the flooding!

This rainy weather is forcing me to look for things inside to shoot.  But I will be patient as I know "April showers make the flowers grow".

This is our third day of heavy rain showers off and on during the day and night. The birds are really visiting the feeder. This was the only little one I captured though.

Abbi loves to sit on the back of this chair and watch the birds and squirrels out the window.

I love to watch the sunset over Pine River!  I thought this one was really going to be more colorful than it was.... I am so not good at knowing which sunsets are going to light the sky up in that beautiful golden red color.
