March 23 - Perfect Ranunculus - This bud just opened this morning. I'm amazed at the perfect order of the petals. It's Spring and everything is bursting with new life. Just a few weeks ago my yard looked so desolate and now it's glorious. Isn't nature wonderful? This is full frame, but I wondered if I should crop to just that perfect flower, or leave it at my original thought of showing it in context. Always a dilemma.

Hanging out in Lebanon, OH. Some of the best Correctional facilities in the US, located next to Traders World and the brand new Miami Valley Gaming Racino, But we decided to visit the best part of Lebanon: The Golden Lamb located in historic downtown Lebanon -- The Golden Lamb Inn is the oldest hotel in Ohio, having been established in the Warren County seat of Lebanon in 1803. The present four-story structure is built around the 1815 rebuilding of the inn, maintaining its colonial architecture. Wikipedia  I wish I would have brought my wide angle lens, and a few more cards.
A flower to brighten your day...    We're in a warming trend - 13 degrees above zero  today, and 20s for the next couple of days.  A little warmer and we could start tanning!  LOL.    Have a blessed day!

Coppersmith    The Coppersmith Barbet, Crimson-breasted Barbet or Coppersmith  (Megalaima haemacephala), is a bird with crimson forehead and throat which is best known for its metronomic  call that has been likened to a coppersmith striking metal with a hammer. It is a resident found in South Asia and parts of Southeast Asia. Like other barbets, they chisel out a hole inside a tree to build their nest. They are mainly fruit eating but will take insects.    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coppersmith_Barbet
