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!

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.

Grocery stores are great for sunflowers this time of year! You wouldn't know it is winter in Colorado right now...
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.
Well, we didn't reach great temps yesterday but it's tolerable.  Today's high will be 17 degrees.      Have a blessed day!
