The presence of Spring


I have found a morel mushroom
one here
one there
not many
still a joy to see


:details of a cedar leaf, enchanting


: forest trillium
thriving under the mighty forest
bathing in gentle sunlight


a polypore begins to grow
most likely a Red Belted conk:


upstream
snow melt filling the creek 
singing to the forest:


water dancing over stones
racing down the mountain:
 

 


listen quietly
and
one can hear the world growing
creating
a fantastic song of a new season

    1. Yes, for the most part it seems pure and unspoiled, but it is a huge state and lots of things have happened here.

  15. What gorgeous photos Tammie.😀

    I remember trillions from when I lived in Toronto, many years ago. They are Ontario's provincial flower.🌞
