I have two blogs I post to every day. I usually have a different shot for each blog. Today I’m using the same image. A adult Barred Owl (Strix varia) came out to visit us along the edge of the trail on our afternoon hike. We heard that it was in the area, and we very lucky to see it! I’m pleased as it’s a lifer for me!
Along nature’s trail the Wild Rose are starting to bloom. Here’s a fine example from this afternoon at the Lagoon.
This flower is from our Empress tree. The nut shaped item is a seed pod. The buds of these flowers have been on the tree since last fall. They suffered through the winter and have burst into hundreds of these bell shape flowers. Very Pretty!
The red leaves of a Maple tree behind our house dance in all directions against a soft wind.
Flowers from our Clamatis Montana. They are hanging about our front door and are seen here from behind.
