The snow may have melted, but the cold remained and we got a dusting of…well, I guess it’s still snow, but it’s more like sleet. Kind of crusty and granular. Of course I went out in the yard to see what I could do.
The trout lily leaves were well under way and also the spring beauty. They’re toughing it out.
With the naked eye I couldn’t tell what this little sprig is, but in the computer I could instantly tell it is a hepatica blossom, dressed for the cold.
One of the first things to bring green to the forest floor is wild leeks. We have tons of them. Maybe this is the year I pick some to eat.
The contrast of green and white drew me to little secrets.
But once I got to looking, more wonders came calling.
I don’t have too much to say in this post. The photos speak for themselves. If you take the time to venture out and look around, you can find beauty.
The pictures spoke volumes. It all looks very beautiful and I found the green bud particularly intriguing. Tough indeed!
Thanks so much. Early wildflowers seem to be able to stand up to a lot of abuse.
