I enjoy reading, writing, gardening, photography, genealogy and travel. I have opinions about many things, but am trying to age gracefully and not continually tick people off with them. Sometimes I can’t help myself.

  1. Unusual owl photos. Love the last shot of the blossoming tree surrounded by colorful flowers. The lions don’t look very happy. Fun post, made me smile.

      1. Thanks for stopping by William. It’s a rewarding time of year to take photos, isn’t it? Things are so colorful and changing rapidly in the spring. We’ve gotten a good deal of rain lately. All our trees, even the tallest sycamores, are out now. Everything looks lush.

    1. Yes. Such a big fellow with such a comical appearance. I felt bad it’s horn was off. I don’t know if that is something that happens periodically to them, or if he experienced an accident of some sort.
