Backyard Paradise

Spring is slowly, daintily, tiptoeing into the dance of seasons.Apr29TreeFringe

Sunday, I chose to explore, enjoy, and try to express the wild beauty of my backyard.Apr28Vine

I hoped to even find morel mushrooms, just as I’ve hoped this property is home to Redbud trees.

I found the Redbuds …. way at the back edge,Apr29Redbud

and a box turtle,Apr29Box_Turtle

and a beautiful hill of these blue, timber flowers, that I don’t know the name of.Apr29BlueFlowers

Here is a close-up:Apr29BlueCloseup

I had songs and company, too.Apr29CardinalApr29Nuts

No ‘shrooms, though.

Hmmmm, have to think about that.Apr29Robin

For today, friends, I hope you enjoy something in your own backyard!

    It has been a long slumber, indeed! I think it has been a good 6 months since I’ve seen green trees. Hope you have a beautiful day.

    Your blue flowers are Virginia Bluebells. I had them at the house and enjoyed them each spring, the pink buds opening to blue bell shaped flowers. They’re a native wildflower, like the kind of woodland area you photographed them in and will be back each spring. Keep an eye out for Jack-in-the-Pulpits, Trilliums, various violets, shooting stars and dog tooth violets as they like the same kind of conditions. Enjoy Spring!!

  5. Wonderful images! Spring is looking gorgeous in your backyard .. 🙂
