I know, I know. DSis tells me I am blathering. Not in so many words, but I know what she means. But see, I have this KnitCroBlogWeek thing, AND some reeeeely awesome pix from the trip.
One might say that the photos will wait, and well they may.
But...I have iris coming on!
So. In Kansas. Not only were there lilacs, but there were dogwoods. Oh I do miss dogwoods, but dogwoods are a tree of my adulthood. Lilacs are from my childhood. So...different there.
( I made my father-in-law stop the car for these. He was a pretty good sport. I think.)
The honeysuckle was blooming.
So were dandylions. I heard on NatGeo TV last night that dandylions were brought here from Europe. (I am a wealth of trivial knowledge. Seriously, if we ever play trivial pursuit, pick me as a partner. I win alot. Or use to.)
And then. I heard a wren's song, and chanced to see one fly into this birdhouse. So I grabbed the camera and the telephoto and just sat on the step of the back porch. I saw her (him?) fly out, away, and back, about 3 times.
It was awesome.
