Your winter just lingers on! Our winter was hard, but spring is taking over now, just a few weeks later than usual.
Yesterday I tried to drive to the nearest trail head, just to see what it was like, but a foot of ice on the road (and prudence) led me to turn around about a mile before I got there.
Spring is just starting here Maria. March is a month of wild weather swings but a very exciting time. Wildflowers start to bloom, then get covered by new snow, then are in full sun again the next day. One of my favorite times!
Thanks Candace. I’m very rusty at the shutter, but it’s fun to start again. My posture is not very pretty though when taking pictures of the low growing flowers. I think I must look like something that fell off a truck, but it’s wonderful to be trying!
Little yellow bloom equals happiness! Yellow always makes me cheer up and I needed to look at this photo of yours today, Montucky. Snow on the ground this morning and temps in the teens. Still looks and feels like winter here and no flowers or green in sight yet. :(
We’re nearly overrun with buttercups now. They’re everywhere, in greater profusion than I’ve ever seen. Maybe I’m just more attuned to wildflowers this year. They are beautiful – so sunny and springlike. I just laughed at the image of photographer-you, like a sack of turnips. Who cares? I suspect just being out there is worth it all!
Isn’t it great to see the wildflowers start to appear! Glad you have lots this year! I’m sure there will be many new ones in your area. Here, there will only be a few for the next month, then there will be plenty.
Yes, it’s very good to be outside and moving around a little just in time for spring!
