Looking for Some Life!

"No winter lasts forever, no spring skips it's turn."
Hal Borland

The weather was decent today. In the 50's F (18 C), some sunshine, a little overcast and windy but way better than it has been. 
I decided to take my camera around the yard and see what was breaking ground, blooming or not.....mostly not. This Crocus is the only thing that's going to bloom any time soon. Pulmonaria is budding as well as some Daffs.
Not finding anything of much interest in the gardens, I decided to take a walk to the brook and see if anything was coming up there. What a difference a year makes! The picture below was taken last April and if you look hard you can see the little ribbon of water.

This is the same general area today. We've had a lot of rain and it's hard to tell where the brook ends and the swampy bank ends.

The only thing coming up is Skunk cabbage. It's really interesting when it first breaks ground.

This is how thick the brush's a jungle out there!

Some color! Moss looks incredibly green when everything else is dull.

We have a couple of new dead falls because of the crazy wind we've had in March and April. In the 2nd picture, you can that this one got caught on other trees....

This is what's happening in my neck of the woods. Not much but, it's better than last week and next week will be better than this week.

Today, I'm grateful for the color blue. I drove by a house whose lawn was a blanket of blue. So beautiful! I have no idea what kind of flower it is....

Happy Gardening,
