Word Light

Two sunny days in a row...we're on a roll up here. πŸ˜‚ This rain has become almost more than one gal can take, but I know that I am not alone and that many corners are getting an excess of spring showers.

🌼*🌼*🌼*🌼

That said, I'm popping in a few springy photos taken  yesterday. I was with my dad and we had a good day. Lots of fun conversation and lots of bird watching.

After all the words of late, you deserved word light with pictures. A happy May day to you...

  1. Lovely spring scenes from your corner, Vee. So nice that you were able to a good day with your dad. With your fondness for yellow, I think the daffodils and goldfinches must be especially welcome sights to you right about now.

  4. Spring is looking beautiful your way. Love that daffodil that shot right through the leaves. Yes we have had excess rain here causing delays in our house building.

  5. Pretty "word light" pictures Vee! Spring has sprung over here too and we are told that more sogginess is on it's way - sigh. Love your random thought about Winston Churchill - or is that a quote from somewhere?

    1. Oh I hope that homely comparison is not a quote anywhere. πŸ€“

  6. After days and days of rain, sunshine is a gift that is relished. Not to self: sometimes it takes doing without a thing to really see it as the gift that it is.

    So lovely to have enjoyed that beautiful spring day with your dad! Love the Mr. Churchill finch. :) Wishing you more glorious springtime days!

  8. Oh Vee, your photos are so lovely. I really like the photo of the bicycle behind the large tree. And the goldfinch--so colorful. Daffodils galore--I'm so glad Spring has arrived to your Haven. ♥

  11. Your pictures are all lovely. Glad you had a good day with your day.
    We've had lots of rain but just as much sun too during a day. It changes from hour to hour.

  14. Soo pretty! Glad you were able to enjoy such a gloriously beautiful sunshiny day with your dad! Happy May to you too!

  15. Spring is looking beautiful in your corner. A sunny day is one to savour. We have one today, too, and I can hardly bear not being out in the garden. Those goldfinches are so pretty. It's always amazing to me how the first shoots upwards in the spring can spear dead leaves like that daffodil has done.
    Glad you had a good day with your dad.

  16. Lovely, lovely photos you have shared here, Vee...you really are a photographer at heart, aren't you? You have a great eye for composition! The "setting" is so very peaceful and I could watch those little finches all day long. What a beautiful day to visit you dad.

  19. You live in such a beautiful place, Vee! I saw two yellow birds zipping around my yard yesterday. I think they were oriels but they might have been finches. So pretty, either way!

    Yay for sunshine!

  20. Beautiful photos of a lovely day, Vee. I could be envious ... you mentioned two sunny days in a row. Our Wednesday was not sunny except for a few moments at a time -- otherwise it was cloudy with periods of rain.

  21. This sunshine is good for the soul. Glad you got some and we got some, too. Good days with our aging fathers are a good thing. Love the birds!

  24. Oh, those winding roads are beautiful, Vee, and everything is so green. All the rain we've had I'm sure. How great to be out and about with your dad...sounds like a great day!

  26. How nice to get out with your dad for a fun drive. I sure enjoyed seeing your scenes along the way and at home. Thanks for sharing!

  27. Lovely lovely promising photos--spring is in the air there and there is so much green!

  28. So, it's 47 degrees and GLOOMY down here in the deep south today (nope, not kidding!), so I am happy for you with the sunshine! Hopefully, you can string together a few of those days. I loved the photos of the daffodils from today's post. Feels like virtual sunshine! And, the photos here in this post of the landscapes and birds are AH!mazing. :) Spring is definitely upon you!

    1. Alas, the sun was shortlived. We have 11 days of rain to get through before we see the sun again IF we are to believe the weather reports. Yes, it is chilly. Sorry that the cold reaches so far south. Brrrr...

  29. Sure is good to not see snow anymore isn't it? It took a turn here for the cold and wet this past week. We have sunshine today, but still cold, in the 40's. I get comfy around 60 as long as there is no wind. Enjoy the blooms as they appear!
