I find it difficult to take shots of lily of the valley as they are so low to the ground. I took a chance with this one lone sprout sticking up among the hosta leaves and the lily of the valley leaves. It had been raining so the water clings to the leaves. I know the flower likes to have plenty of moisture. The overlapping leaves makes the photo into an abstract shot.

The honeysuckle is blooming. It is receiving a lot of rain and looks fresh and green. The flowers are almost all opened now. I didn't notice a fragrance when I took the photo but the wind was blowing so hard that the fragrance was headed towards the neighbors.

The tree calls out to me to take its photo on certain days more than others. Yesterday the sun was bright and the light was clear making the bark look so clean. Small sets of leaves are now forming on the branches.
The leaves that are just now forming make a blurred shadow at the ends of the smaller branches. The spiral tentacle shapes will be popping out soon, making some of the birds very happy.
