The swallows have returned

But they refuse to hold still and let me take their picture.

I got that photo by pointing the camera at the sky and clicking fast when one came in to view. It took about ten tries before I finally got one.

More evidence of spring from the neighborhood:

These purple flowers are so bright they stopped me in my tracks when I saw them on my way to the mailbox.

The petals on these flowers look like delicate tissue paper.

This is a short post because I'm a bit under the weather. Between moving and not feeling well, I haven't had much of a chance to go online this week. Next week I hope to return to my regulary scheduled abundant blogging.

Hope you have a great weekend.

Hi Golden Bird!
Thanks so much for your sweet comments! :)

Great job on capturing the bird photo...that's not easy. Last year I tried f-o-r-e-v-e-r to catch a shot of our hummingbirds, I finally gave up.
Gorgeous flowers!Love the pretty pink ones. Are they azaleas?
Enjoy your weekend!
Kimberly :)
