Spring


drove and hiked hoping to see
Spring Beauties
at first I thought I was too early in the season
once one was spied
I noticed they were sprinkled throughout the meadow


our first forest flower
 the lovely yellow violet


I love watching things turn green
sprout leaves
the sun warming our world

this last winter my walking bridge died
last week I made a new one
felt like a nice accomplishment


I have a huge plum colored bolder in my yard
after the rain
the lichen turns this wonderful color


here and there 
are mushrooms
full of fun character
another sign of a new season


the setting sun inspires pause

soaring as the sun sets

  16. I love your photos! Spring here in Israel is over already, summer started with hot days and no rain any more till next winter. Rain this year was plenty, and we had a wonderful spring with a lot of wildflowers. Our planet is a gorgeous thing, so much variety and so much beauty everywhere! :-)
