Spring really is just around the corner. Actually, it is here already in my yard. I took these photos today. Not a lot of the daffodil varieties are blooming yet but these certainly are. Can't you just smell them?
These sweet little yellow wood violets are popping up all over in the forest, along with lots of foliage of more flowering plants, like miners lettuce and wild bleeding hearts. If you click on the wood violet picture you will see the detail of the moss and the rain drops.
This is vinca minor, grows like crazy here. I used to have a white variety but haven't seen that one bloom yet. Do you see that pod hanging on the left side of the flower? That is from the Golden Chain tree. It puts out lots of these pods and the mice collect the seeds. I sometimes find big stashes of them. Also they are sprouting up all over the yard. Anyone want some? The golden chain seeds I'm talking about. Not the mice, although come to think of it, if you want some mice you can come and get them.
So all of you still in the snow zone, try to be patient a little longer. It's a big circle and it's coming around again.
Five For Fighting was what I last listened to today. Wonder where he came up with that name?
