Spring — Already!

Tiny little henbit flowers

I can hardly wrap my mind around the fact that spring is here again.  Or that I have lived here for so many years and photographed the same little flowers– or their parents — for so many springs.  Yet, their welcome little faces are always new to me.

White daffodils

Everything is very early this year due to our non-winter.  The daffodils are almost finished.  Only 3 blooms remain.

Hope you enjoy the familiar nature show.  🙂

Perennial vinca comes back every year around our front porch.

Sweet little bluets carpet the open woods

These tasteless little Indian strawberries have almost completely crowded out the delicious wild strawberries.

Not sure what these are. I think they are crabapple flower buds.

New fig leaves

New rosebud

Last year's green onions are blooming

 

A bumper crop of dandelions is on the way!

Moss on an old plum tree

The white plum flowers have fallen. Now baby plums are on the way.

    Pretty, pretty pretty photos

    • Glad you enjoyed them. My favorites are the little henbits. They look like little orchids almost to me!

    I might be envious but we’re having very early spring weather here in PA also. Flowers are just starting though, and I do the same thing – take photos every year. Always enjoy your posts.

    • Kathy, I’m so glad you are having decent weather up there, too! Isn’t it fun to take pictures of beautiful flowers? How do you use yours?

      I sometimes pick my favorites and use them as desktop wallpaper. Or sometimes I print them out and use them as greeting cards. There are so many ways to enjoy our photos, aren’t there?

      I am loving the warm weather… and I try not to worry about what summer might be like. 🙂
