THE lovely color of Kansas in Spring...

Redbud in full bloom in our backyard...glad I took it yesterday, it may be buffeted to little purple shards by the storms today and those to come tonight...

April '09 Full Moon at Lake Shawnee

Can you see the moon in this picture?

Now you can...

The moon escaping the trees...

And now, of course, there are two moons to adore.

Geese, Lake Shawnee

Joined by this fine pair of Canada geese at Lake Shawnee while out to take Moon pictures.

Taraxacum officinale

The real flower of Spring...tough as nails; neither ice nor sleet nor snow nor anything else the Kansas weather can throw at it will discourage it at all. Named for its leaves, from the French for "tooth of the lion," and able to set seed without pollination. A true survivor.
