In Search of the First Wildflowers


we found our first wildflowers of the year 
(by driving over an hour north)
as well as
an emerald colored native bee! 


 the earth had but tiny blades of grass appearing amongst 
the pine needle strewn forest floor

yet the lovely pasqueflowers hold their heads high
celebrating life


here and there a 
scattering of lovely yellow bells


after a long winter
these first flowers
fill ones heart with joy
 

a new season is ours to embrace

    2. I just realized I keep calling you Tammie Lee...should I be calling you Tammie? I just thought it sounded so nice together, but maybe Lee is your last name, so sorry for that! :)

    3. You are right, it is my last name. But either way is fine.

  3. The emerald coloured bee is stunning. I don’t believe that I have ever seen such a creature. And you are absolutely right about the uplifting power of flowers after a long winter. I don’t suppose that the residents of a south sea island could even imagine such a thing.

    1. I enjoyed seeing that bee. It flew off a few times, but came right back. The flowers were quite spread out, she did not want to leave the pollen. Yes, I believe you are right about islanders.

  7. Who is most in search? The photographer or the bee? Either way, you both win. How grateful you must be to see these sweet friends!

    1. Interesting that you don't have yellow bells. I am guessing that they grow at lower elevation.

  13. Wow! I thought our season was short, but we have had wild flowers flowering for about a month. They are not as exciting as yours, though. I love that bee. We have nothing like that here.

  14. I have dandelions in the yard, but haven't seen anything else. April was so cold, they are probably waiting to come out.
    That bee looks like a piece of jewelry.

  16. These pictures are stunning, Tammie Lee. And what an unusual looking Bee - kind of exotic looking, don't you think? Have never seen one like that before. I bet the wildflowers filled your heart with joy after such a long Winter.

    Happy May days. : )
