Ah, spring. For a brief few days, the color of spring is fall-like, full of reds and oranges and pale yellows.
Our redbud bloomed a few days ago and for a couple of days looked like a bumblebee hive. I don’t think I’ve seen so many bumblebees at one time as I did in the tree. On the mountain, the leaves are finally turning green. Daffodils are waning already and tulips are preparing to bloom. On the parkway, white dogwood blooms peak out from the edges of the woods.
Off the mountain, the trees are now deep green and the azaleas and rhododendrons are in full glory, as are the yellow, pink, and white dogwoods.
Cheers the soul, it does,
Here’s Shadow by one of our favorite stops along our path through the woods.
