Getting quite warm nowadays and I find I am much more likely do do all my daily steps if I start no later than 9 am for my walking. I was going in the late afternoon but not now that it has gotten so warm.
I did get the DSLR out however and headed to several dogwood trees in town that aren't totally finished with the blossoms. Mostly they are gone and those that are left are decaying. Time for just leaves. I took a photo of some pink ones and then I decided to go to the arboretum. Not many flowers there either as has sadly been the thing for four years now. There are columbine and some "stop overs" for the monarch butterflies. I saw one there enjoying the plants. Maybe there will be more as the season goes along but I won't hold my breath.
I put a bee visiting a flower in Flickr this afternoon. It has been fairly popular. I usually put my better ones in Flickr. It took about 25 attempts to get the bee still so I could get him in a close-up. I had to delete all the others.
It's Good Friday and soon to be Easter. I will be here alone which is not unusual for Easter. I won't cook as no kids will be here. I had two invitations but turned them down in order to observe by myself here and get things accomplished that I must.
You all have a wonderful weekend. I haven't had candy in 10 months! Easter is when I could crack and eat till I busted wide open. I love coconut eggs. However, if none passes my lips, then I needn't worry. I'm still "going straight". If I eat it, I can't be responsible for not continuing. Best thing is not to buy it. I do eat a heckuva bunch of graham crackers though.
