The Comforts of My Own Yard

When I'm bored and don't have time to walk to the pond, I somehow always end up finding new things in my yard to photograph. Take yesterday, for example.

Some more of our oak-leaf hydrangeas have started to bloom.

A bird's nest fell from a tree, probably from the storm a couple of days ago.
Thank goodness there wasn't anything in it.

Our hostas have started blooming with their beautiful lilac color.

These things (I know the name but it escapes me right now) The crepe murdles have also started opening, glorious and pink.

Oh, and the day lilies. They're stunning and orange.

^something macro for kate's challenge^

Where is your favorite place to take photos?
PS: I need your thoughts on the new design! I'm not sure if I like it or not... I was just messing around yesterday.
