It’s always nice to have something you can count on. Although it may not always occur on your schedule or terms nature always makes good on the promise of spring.
A midwinter monochrome bouquet picked from a selection of last summers wildflowers. Distant yet still fresh in our minds.
This years crop will be poking up in the blink of an eye as the sun rises higher in the sky with each passing day and will appear, not in monochrome but full color, and after a long cold winter a little color is a fine thing.
Enjoy the silence as spring will be hear soon.
Sumac buds busting out to meet the sun after a light dusting of snow the previous evening. Today it feels like spring is here to stay.
I have noticed that each fall I end up taking a few shots of milk weed and always say to myself that next fall I need to make a dedicated effort to photograph this wonderful plant. The same happened again this year.
