Yippee! It's Outdoor Wednesday again and it couldn't have been a more beautiful day here to get outside. After you check this post out, run over to Susan's at A Southern Daydreamer. She might even have some lemonade made for you to sip while you view!
I didn't manage to get outside today for pics until later in the day. I made sure my camera batteries were charged and off Boudreaux and I went on our adventure.
Here's some pics at a local park. It was stunning with the trees in bloom.
Now I'll be honest, I don't know one tree from another. Mr. Dumpling "thinks" these are crabapple trees. He's usually pretty good but I'm not betting the money in the bank on it.
Regardless, they are gorgeous! And there's something about a white picket fence that just reels me in. Just about anything looks prettier behind a picket fence!
See the little picnic table? We've had numerous picnics here and even some Easter egg hunts when OnlySon was little.
See the little boys? They have their fishing poles and were having a great time.
Don't you love how the evening sun is bouncing off the trees?
I even played around with the macro on my camera. This is before I turned on the macro:
And this is after. Don't you love the effect! See how the flowers just POP and the background is blurred. Love it!
And then the fun began! I was taking a picture of these peach (?) trees when the most beautiful birds flew in to view. Well, I just was a twitter with excitement. I couldn't hardly hold the camera still.
And then...I heard that horrible beep. Acckk, my memory on the camera was FULL! A gorgeous blue bird flew over and joined him on the ground and I couldn't take one picture. Woe is me!
Well, our adventure has come to an end. We're going to stroll down this little path and rest a while.
