Through the four seasons of 2007 – 2012, I kept a photo blog, SilverLining-MaryMcAvoy, of the various life forms around a pond in New England. I moved away from the pond a year ago and I still miss it, especially using my camera to pay close attention to the world of nature.

For the past couple of days, I’ve walked around the yard here and reaped a pretty impressive display from Mother Nature.

I’ll let the photos do the talking! Enjoy!

The blossoms:

black crow...who rules the sky in these parts! I watched two chase a red-tail hawk out of their turf yesterday.
