The Work of Spring

by Edie Melson @EdieMelson

Since Friday was the first day of spring, I thought I'd share a recent experience in the form of a photo.

Last weekend my husband and I had the opportunity to witness the shy blooming of an endangered wildflower, Oconee Bellsshortia galacifolia. These shy flowers only bloom for about two weeks in the early spring.

  1. Robins out on my lawn before it snowed yesterday.

  2. Beautiful, thanks for sharing! And thanks for introducing me to picmonkey because I have wanted to know how to create photos like these.

    1. Barbara, I did mention picmonaey was addicting, didn't I? Blessings, E

  3. Well because I'm in Maine and we've had the worst winter ever, I have found it very difficult to notice any signs of Spring...UNTIL...I heard the birds chirping and the Seagulls lurking around. Going to look into picmonkey. Beth

    1. Beth, when the birds begin to sing, we know spring is on the way! Blessings, E

  4. Daffodils blooming everywhere. Maples red with buds. Buds swelling on the Bradford pears. Forsythia buds showing color.

    Any day now ...
