The Fading Redbud

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Redbud 41921a” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

The gentle hum of the honeybees is only broken by melodic tones of the songbirds. Today as I strode out to complete a few projects the flycatchers fledglings began to shoot out of the nest. One by one they seemed pop out and introduce themselves to me as I worked on the front porch. They were born and raised a mere two feet from my door so they don’t really seem to mind me being so close. They lumber about clumsily for a few moments until instincts kick in and they are accepted into the wind. They all headed into the little thicket at the edge of the yard and by the time I got back with my camera they’d disappeared again. But they did lead me to the last of the redbud bloom.

The delicate pink flowers only seem to last a few weeks. As they fade away the dogwoods come into bloom and for a very short period we’re blessed with both on my mountain. As the pink, pea-like flowers fade and drop to the ground the leaves are forming and everything is becoming lush green. The Buckeye has started to put forth its floral spikes and the next beauty I look forward to is the mountain Magnolia with it’s large white flowers. I’ve located a few that I hope will bloom close enough to ground level that I can get some nice closeup shots of.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.

Announcement 2.0

For those who have been following me on Facebook and know of the struggle content providers have to get circulation from big tech I’ve been recommending for people to adopt MeWe as a social media platform. One of the problems I’ve run into on MeWe is that people don’t know how to navigate the platform. So to help with that I’ve created a permanent page on my website as a basic Basic Beginner’s Guide To MeWe I’ve tried to anticipate all basic questions there and You can bookmark the page to have as a reference and if you have any questions or suggestions don’t hesitate to contact me. I do still have a day job and I help admin several pages on both platforms so replies might be a little slow but I will answer you.

We also have the Lloyd’s Lens Photography Discussion Group on MeWe that is set up as a fully functional community. There you’ll not only be able to see and connect with me but you can also make your own posts and interact with each other.

I want you to join my group on MeWe:
