It’s finally March

..but no sign of Spring yet. There’s still a lot of ice on Lake Michigan.

On my ride around the ovals at Muskegon’s Pere Marquette beach I grabbed some pictures and even uploaded them this time! These were captured Saturday, March 2, 2019.

God is good! Out of the blue He leads me to a photo-op. 

Usually this happens when I change my plans on a whim.  This time I walked out the door planning to take my usual morning walk in the woods but I forgot to put on mosquito spray, (they were buzzing around me), so I decided instead I’d get in the car and go for a ride with my camera.  I only rode around the block and even that was on a whim.  I was going to go a different route but a car coming up behind me made me decide to turn to get out of it’s way.

I saw how pretty the sunlight looked streaming through the trees so I pulled off on the shoulder of the road to capture a picture of it.  The biker startled me a little when he silently came up from behind and whizzed past as I was getting out of the car with my camera.  The timing was perfect!

Thank you Lord! (and biker)

Kookaburra

I call our resident male cardinal(s) Kookaburra, not because of their “laugh” (thank heavens.. have you ever heard a real Kookaburra?) but because he truly is the king of his territory.  I’ve watched epic battles between the males fighting for the front yard feeder.  When he wins a battle he perches high on his favorite branch and sings his victory song.
I guess the loser got the back yard territory.

Flowers of June (so far)

Daisy foliage (top right) is just anticipation.
I wish I could bottle the scent of that peony.
