Macro is one of my favorite forms of photography. I haven't had too many photo ops lately, so I thought I would do a little macro on this first day of Spring.

Signs of Spring!

Signs of spring are starting to show in Smith county. Our bradford pear trees are already starting to bloom. The blooms are pretty, but they stink for some reason.
My willow tree is starting to green up nicely. I wish it wouldn't because I think we have more winter weather left.
Terry built three new planters on the other side of our garden fence. These will be filled with assorted flowers and flowering vines.

Our cat, Libby, in her usual spot on the deck. The cats have enjoyed this warmer weather. They've been cooped up in the garage during the winter.
Our sweet Jessie cat spends most of her time sleeping these days. She's had some health problems lately and we're making sure that she is comfortable, is eating well and is getting plenty of water. Her kidney problems have brought on a new unwelcome problem...vomiting. It's a part of it unfortunately. I have been breaking a Pepcid into four pieces. I crush up one piece and sprinkle on her canned food. It has helped and apparently the taste doesn't bother her. As soon as the weather warms up we plan on getting her a lion cut. She loves it!
