Once the Spring season begins it's "pedal to the metal" in order to capture all the natural surprises and we haven't even gotten into the tulip bloom and I've got about 80 new plantings that are just now peaking toward the sky. It seems like everytime I take the walk down into one of our state parks something new has revealed itself.
The blog image is of a Trout Lily, which are just now showing up in the low lying areas in local forests. They're only about 3 -4 inches in height and it takes some real shrinking to get a birds eye view of this delicate flower. As I've told many, as they spy me proned on the ground, the view is better from down here!
As added amusement I've just recieved a notice from a local magazine that submissions are being taking for their Fall print. Imagine that...we've just shaken off the snow (sorry, shouldn't have said that) and it's time to search the 2012 files for fall color. I'm still waiting for the greening of the trees!
Thanks for visiting the site and I hope you all take time to smell the roses...or tulips. Just get out in the Spring air.
Go Baylor...Sic 'Em Bears.
