Scavenger Hunt Sunday

It's time again for Scavenger Hunt Sunday. Most weeks I wonder what to post and this week I had multiple photos and couldn't decide which to post so you get a couple of extra shots this week.
Click on the first photo and enjoy the slideshow.

1.  GLOW
The sun shining through this daffodil reminded me of the GLOW from a little candle cup.

2.  OLD

This is an old petal car my husband bought me many years ago on our way home from a vacation. Someone was just sitting alongside the road with some things for sale. It sat for years on our upstairs landing. Our kid's would ride it back and forth between their rooms.

3.  SHADOW
It's time to hang the feeder in preparation for the hummingbirds. I'm hoping one shows up soon.

4.  SPRING

My ornamental plum tree had blooms this week and just as quicky has lost them. I took these shots on Thursday before we had rain and the wind was blowing them off then. Today I noticed the tree has way more leafs than blooms. As I was taking the pictures I could hear the frogs in the coy pond behind me having a good old time. This little guy must have thought if he didn't move I wouldn't see him. Not sure how long he sat there afraid to move with that petal covering his mouth. Too cute!

5.  SMILE
Go ahead, SMILE! Come on, you know you want to!  :)

Linking to Scavenger Hunt Sunday.
