Spring Romp

Okay guys, this post is going to give you a delightful dose of SPRING! I LOVE SPRING! Ahem. Take a deep breath and smell the fresh spring air…

First off we have a humble dandelion. But have you ever noticed how beautiful they really are? The dandelion has such a sunny, fluffy bloom, and look at those exquisite little curlicues peppering the surface of the flower!

Next up we have some more pretty weeds – with BOKEH in the background! I love bokeh. โ™ฅย I think this is corn speedwell.

I really like these pictures! They’re so… springy! ๐Ÿ˜€

Now I’ll take a break from flowers.ย How about a landscape instead?

I love this next picture! (I love lots of things in this post, don’t I? XD Spring, bokeh, pictures…)

The foreground is gorgeous lush triticale, and the background includes chicken houses, the litter shed, solar panels, ย andย my cousins’ house.ย ๐Ÿ™‚

Some fresh new spring oatย starts…

There was some perfectly oozy mud that we just had to squish in, and after our walk, my friend and I went back. I made a little mud-bird from sticks, bark, and of course, mud. ๐Ÿ™‚ Isn’t she cute? She is a bit dirty though. *Sigh* I’m afraid that’s her fate. XD Sometime I should go back and see if she’s still there.

This raccoon must have liked the mud too. Doesn’t his little handprint look like human handprint? It especially does in this picture because you can’t see how small it is.

And to finish it off, here are some Lily the rabbit pictures. SQUEEE! She’s so fat and plush! … Perhaps a bit too fat andย plush. XD But I love you anyway, dearest Lily.

She looks half grumpy, half startled, and all CUTE in this picture!

Okay, guys. You are going to die from a cuteness attack when you see this next picture. Lily and a calf are making friends! (Well, at least the calf is. Lily… maybe not so much. XD Look at the expression on her face!)

I hope these pictures putย an extraย spring in your step. ๐Ÿ™‚ย Have a lovely day! โ™ฅ

  1. The mud reminds me of the time we came over to your house and watched a stick (or was it a corn cob?) float all the way down the stream to your pond. We got SO muddy making paths for it so it wouldn’t get stuck. But boy, was it fun!


    I loved all of these pictures! Lily is ADORABLE and that last picture is so funny. ๐Ÿ˜›

    1. Did you have to look up the word ‘hyperventilates’ to spell it!?! XD XD Heheh! ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ™‚ I probably would have! XD Haha! ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ™‚


  3. WOO – bokeh!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜› I love bokeh, but I haven’t quite figured it out yet. Lovely photos! โค


    1. Thank you! Here’s a tip for bokeh: To get the best bokeh, the background should be water, or sun between the trees, or something with light, bright spots or highlights on it. (It works best on a sunny day, I think.) That’s what happened here: the flowers were in front of a creek, and my camera focused on the flowers and blurred the bright sun glinting off the background into bokeh! I’m not sure if this is technically the way you get bokeh, but it works for me! Thanks again!

  4. Your photos are always so pretty and fun, Allison! I especially like the photos of the flowers.
    I agree, Spring is lovely. ๐Ÿ™‚ Now if it could just be warm enough outside to warm up my room to more than 65 degrees…..

    1. Thank you so much! Bokeh is spots of light in the background of a picture that come from sun glinting off of water, or through trees, etc. The spots of light in the background of my blue-flower pictures was bokeh!

    1. Thanks so much for nominating me, Anika! Butโ€ฆ I donโ€™t really do tags. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I donโ€™t necessarily dislike them, I just donโ€™t usually do that kind of thing on my blog. But thank you!
