All these violets are gone now.
We’ve had plenty of rain, cloudy skies, and severe weather watches.
On scarce days the sun lights Franklin.
Occasional violets quickly became . . .
I love the bursting messiness of the forest floor. I’m partial to violets!
Out in the forest our one dandelion is now also gone.
The first spiderwort in town, a few weeks back. At present the yard takeover is ongoing, which is the way I like things. I prefer the wildflowers to the cultivars.
Out where we live, the crabapple tree jammed the sky with blooms this year.
They pop out anywhere amidst last year’s dry leaves, they don’t care!
Scheming colors make any sort of combo, old or new!
The greens were on their way, even a few weeks ago.
I finally got his picture! Mrs. Cardinal wasn’t around, at least not that I could see. I’ll bet she’s sitting on eggs somewhere.
Dogwoods joined the party, too.
Violets, dandelions, and crabapple flowers are all gone now. Leaves came back and suddenly, sprong! Green everywhere.
Franklin’s having a snooze! He’ll feel nice and refreshed later while he’s getting into everything.
Wisteria was slower this year, those pictures are still in the camera. They won’t be quite like past wisteria:
Again I’m sorry to have not gotten around to comment on other blogs as much as I’d like to. I haven’t been too well. There have been so many severe weather watches! They drain my time and energy because I have to make preparations, shut down the computer due to electrical storms, keep up with changing weather conditions at every moment, and try to alert others through social media. Spring is beautiful but . . . I feel rained on.
Anyways, Happy Earth Day! Coming up, more Franklin and spring; now with iris, the current wave of wisteria, and oh my, all that green!
