Friday Fences - Old Stink Eye




What could this be staring at the photographer between the fence pickets?


While she got the stink eye, here's what the photographer was trying to capture: an all-time favorite spring combo of lilacs blooms and Japanese bloodgood maple leaves.

Ahhh....cute....
Love the lilacs! I have a white bush that isn't blooming much.
You will never guess but today I found a lilac bush like this one on my own property that I didn't know I had. This is the first year it has bloomed in the five years I've lived here. I was thrilled. It was out of the way but the color popped out at me and I went to look and sure enough I had lilacs. Do you think I have too many acres? LOL!

Love the flowers! I would say it's a large dog on the other side of the fence.

Well done for continuing to photograph under stink eye conditions.
Those colours are glorious.

Stink eye must be sore, or so the name suggests. Hope it's much better soon.

I love lilac and maples. Great pictures.
