From the Ground

The theme this week by Kathy is "From the Ground". Mac, Kathy, Craver, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that. The only features we have from the ground is snow right now in Ohio. In a few months we will have other features from the ground.

 The first attraction I see from the ground is the purple crocus. The bees enjoy this occurrence.
This is a flowering bush that came from the ground in Mexico. It put on a beautiful show. 
The peonies are another great show from the ground.
Here is a daffodil that put on a great show. 
This yellow tulip put on a bright display.
The fish are biting when these trees put on their flowering show from the ground. 
See what the others show on my side bar.

The crocus and bee photo is my favorite. Great focus!

Lew said...

Great minds think alike! Love your crocus and bee! And I am looking forward to the return of the flowers you have.

Craver Vii said...

I wonder if it bothers the bee to be so covered with pollen.

Christine said...

I love all your flower shots! They are so crisp and clear, and that's so very hard to do. Plus the bee--that's a real bonus. Well done!
