You Capture: Fresh

This week’s You Capture theme is “Fresh“.   I didn’t have anything in mind, but as we were tooling around the backyard this evening – hubs was grilling up steaks and the kids were playing in the dirt — I knew I wanted to capture the spring flowers in our backyard before they withered away.   Here are my FRESH captures:

We have this lovely, mature white flowering bush in our backyard.   Hubs and I think it looks like Grefsheim Spirea, but I’m not entirely sure that’s right.  Any green thumbs care to ID this shrub?

The azaleas are in bloom right now and just gorgeous.   We have white and pink ones.  They just make me smile to see them.

And then there is the dogwoods.   There is one in our backyard, and one in our neighbors that spreads over part of our yard.   As a native Virginian, I can’t help but love this official state “flower“.  The trees are pretty mature and you can’t actually see the topside of them from the ground.   Mike kindly brought out his step ladder so I could capture their pretty side :)

The tree looks lovely in our backyard, but sadly, I couldn’t take a picture to do it justice.

And finally, I wanted to capture two fresh faces.  You can’t help but love a little boy covered in dirt.

And I may have to rename “Mr. Happy” to “Mr. Stoneface”.   He makes me work for his pictures now.  Must be focusing on his modeling career.
