The wildflower show is about to begin

Spring fever is hitting hard. The sun is shining more days than not, and even though we still have some snow now and then, the temperatures seem to be inching ever upward, even if it’s slower than I’d like. To make things worse, I look through the photos I’ve taken in previous years and I see that in less than a month, we’ll have quite a few flowers in bloom. But I want it NOW.

All things in good time. While I long for warm spring days, and even summer heat, I also enjoy the early walks in nearby woods, where I can watch the floor come to life, one wildflower at a time. In my mind’s eye, I can see it as time-lapse photography. First comes the skunk cabbage, we’ll end with the fire pinks, and by then it’s summer.
