Something Different

All of these photos were taken 2 weeks ago, which doesn't seem all that long ago when put that way. But, when I take a look around my yard, it seems like ages ago.  Seasons are miraculous in how quickly they can transform the scenery.  
The lilacs pictured here are done and there is a haze of brown where there were hundreds of vibrant lavender colored blooms that stood out from across the yard.  

The sea of yellow has diminished into just a few blooms here and there.  In numbers like that, dandelions are beautiful.  
I thought I would toss in another photo of a napping kitty, just because they are so charming when asleep.
And the last photo (the "Something Different), is an attempt at blurred motion photography. I really don't know what I think of this one yet, but it was definitely my favourite of the dozen I took.  I'll have to come back to it in a month or two, comparing it to nothing else.  I do like the colors though.


  1. Lovely pictures but you know my fav is kitty!

  2. Spring bloomings are so very short, sometimes, maybe that's the reason why we love this season so much, but your stunning kitty is always a 'flower in bloom', isn't he ?

    Enjoy your day, my wonderful Andrea, may it be filled with joy and wonder,
    sending much love


  3. I ve been admiring the lilacs here too. It's so uplifting to see the colours burst out around us!
    Great blurred motion shot too- I haven't tried anything like that, so thanks for the inspiration!

  4. You are so right about a couple of weeks making such a difference. And your photos are beyond stunning!

  5. There is nothing sweeter than a sleeping kitty!

  6. Your blurred picture is amazing, it reminds me on a Monet Water lilies painting. It is incredible how the seasons change so quickly isn't it.

  7. I miss lilacs so much, we can't grow them here. Love your photos.
