Just Violet, Jake and I, sitting and enjoying a peaceful Sunday afternoon.
Looking forward to future days along the Chemung with my little river rat.

If you follow any of my blogs, you are sick to death of my whining about this tree. The whining is over! Finally got a really close shot of the blossoms, although I never quite got a proper setting on it. Don't really know why not, either. Just never happened.
But this is the Buckthorn Blossom. I got a shot before the NYSDEC comes in to chop away all the lower hanging branches. Buckthorn--or Alder Buckthorn--is considered an invasive species in some states. Maybe it was considered a nuisance here also.
This is the only one I have ever seen in my life. But it is now identified and I can stop obsessing over it.
