We’ve had some amazingly warm weather here this week. The trees are “sprouting” buds, the sunshine gave everyone good cheer, and it was impossible to stay in.
I spotted some bees on these flowers.
I don’t know what these are called, but I like them.
The tulips are biding their time, but the hyacinth started emerging after a day of warmth.
The Narcissus has an early bloom.
I don’t know the names of these spring flowers.
I wandered the Emily Oaks Nature Preserve and spotted two butterflies already! They were giddy too and fluttered like crazy, so it was impossible to take a snapshot or identify them.
Some “winterâ” flowers. I like the silver sheen.
Emily Oaks hosts numerous goldfish, which tend to be invisible during the lush vegetation months.
Geese and ducks were exploring the pond and chatting away.
Some geese were getting closer.
Until a child ran up and they distanced themselves again.
Here’s hoping the frost is done until the end of the year.
I’ll be getting out my flower dictionary to refresh my naming abilities.
