Spring Beauty

   I don't know how it is for those of you in the East and West, but here in MO it seems as though the winter has gone and summer has come!  I'd always thought of spring as a time of cool breezes, light green buds, and flowers preparing to bloom.  We've had some of that this year, but the temperature has been quite high, and the trees have decided to suddenly "green up." Makes me wonder if the spring has decided to go on holiday for a year, and the summer has tried to step in and fill the time gap.  The winter has tried to help a few times, and brought hail on warm days, leaving us somewhat worried that we might have a tornado. 
   I took a few pictures this morning, after a light rain, while the trees were still drippy with raindrops.  I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I enjoyed taking them!
   I thought these trees looked so happy and light, and as though a dryad might peek out from between them at any moment!
Dandelion, Plantain, and the acorn cap.  Two of these are edible, the other is just fun to play with. 
                              Redbuds, open and full of nectar.

An unidentified tree sprig.  It was such a pretty color of green, and I had to take a photo!

  More redbuds.  They're such a fun, dainty flower!

 I got a kick out of this last photo.  I found the plesiosaur in a man made lake next to our driveway.  Apparently, my siblings were playing in the mud and rain water yesterday  :-)

   And that's it for today's photos!   Seeing nature as it changes from season reminds me of a saying I read the other day:
            "Life is like riding a bicycle.  To keep your balance, you must keep moving." - Einstein

                                Have a blessed day!
