Whispers in green

WHispers_1

Yellow whispers in a big old sea of green.

That is what this Yellow Columbine felt like on a recent hike into the forests nearby. A rainier than typical spring and early summer has the forest looking green as green can be and even a large patch of Columbine growing strong could only mustard a whisper in that sea of green yet sometimes a whispers is all you need.

Super baby bunny

Wait, whats that rustling in the bushes.
A bird..no
A mouse…no
It’s super baby bunny!

Smaller than a squirrel yet bigger than a mouse with quadruple  the cuteness of both. Mightily hopping onto rocks and eating every plant that gets in their way.

Super baby bunny brings brightness to start the day.

Have a wonderful weekend.

The whole

“the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.”

Sometimes that feels so very true. On a day where flowers mix with trees and rock and all blend into one. A single memory, a single thought and a single feeling of a day and a place.

Purple

Today is Purple day. Don’t ask me why…it just is. So on that note a smattering of purple wildflowers seen on various hikes not too far from home.

Above a field of Lupine sparkles on a rainy morning walk.

And to top it all off Larkspur is another fine addition to the collection of local wildflowers blooming this time of year.

Many different shades but all of them say purple to a tee.
