Spring Color, 2014 Edition

Happy Mother’s Day!  I’m a month late posting this little photo project, but, you know, I had a lot going on.

The color mood of the yard that day was a dreary dusty grey.  I decided to focus on the little spots of technicolor polka-dotted around to see if I could capture a rainbow.

And a giant ugly man-eating grasshopper!  GROSS!!!

And a brown, giant, ugly, man-eating grasshopper! GROSS!!!

I am terrified of grasshoppers.  And most other insects.  And rodents.  And amphibians.  And reptiles.  In that order.

By the by, this is my last post as a non-grandmother.  Ava will arrive via c-section either late Monday night or early Tuesday morning.  Next time I post I will be an Oma!  Eeeeee!

  1. Beautiful garden colors! And welcome baby Ava! Non-grandmother no more! LOL! You’re so funny. This little one is going to knock you on your head. She probably already has, and you’re going to have such a wonderful time of it. Do keep us posted!! ox

    • We could really use some of that snow, Elise. Next time it snows, feel free to ship what you shovel to us here in Southern California!
