Things I Love Thursdays

I love heading out for photos, searching for new inspirations to stitch.  The last time I did this, everything was dry and yellow.  I found the crucuses.  Remember those photos?  Here's what I captured yesterday afternoon in fifteen minutes on Floral Road.  Imagine it in fibre...


We've been having SO much rain.  Everything is incredibly lush.


I found red winged black birds, swallows, pigeons, cranes, and a blackbird with yellow (the one that got away).  I love the dark water and the reflection of the trees in the next one. The ditches are FLOODED everywhere.


I love the softness in the middle ground of this next one.  Mmmm so much texture!


Pretty bird!  : )   Posing for it's photo...

Looks similar to a walk I did on Saturday. It will be fun to see what you do from the photos -- lots of great material to work with!

These are great Monika - I can picture every one of them as your stitched pictures. They will be lovely!!!

The last 3 are my favorites. The trees with the water is a beautiful photo.
What kind of plant is that in the last two?
I'm sure we'll see it in fiber soon!
