Spring flowers and April showers

It has been so beautiful around here lately with everything that is in full bloom thanks to our very early Spring. My husband (IMHO) is very talented when it comes to taking pictures. He just has the eye for it and for that I am thankful. It really comes in handy when I need pictures for my blog or scrapbook layouts I mean I can point a camera and shoot like a group shot or of a person but he sees things through that lens in such cool ways.So I wanted to take today to show off his talent and bring a little Spring sunshine to everyone's day. It is raining here today, we are expecting a storm anytime now. We need the rain badly but I could do without the
Anyway, enjoy some of my favorite pictures of our flowers in bloom and have a great Saturday.

  12. Those photos are gorgeous! Y'all are obviously weeks ahead of us on the blooming schedule. We won't have roses blooming until probably early June.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  13. beautiful!
    I love to scrap too. But I am the photographer in our family. Not only does my hubby not take photos, he gets so grumpy about getting his pic taken! argh...
    funny thing is when I was growing up my dad was always taking pictures and I hated it. It wasn't until my late teens that I got into photography. I even have his Canon now that he has passed away. now as a mom, i understand why he was taking so many pics.
