Happy Easter. Now that spring is upon us, I am looking forward to blooming flowers, warmer temperatures and spending more time outdoors. On my side of town our peony plants are shooting up out of the ground, as well as the tulips. The hyacinth flowers are blooming and the crocus have been withered by our recent snows. I kept telling myself to snap a few images of our pretty crocus plants before the snows, but I missed my opportunity. They survived one snow storm, but the second one was too much for them.
Today, my son and I ventured out to the bookstore and picked up a field guide to wildflowers native to our state. I know as things start to bloom, my son will be asking me what’s this and what’s that as we are on our little adventures.
Hopefully now, I can answer him with something better than, “Oh that’s a purple flower.”
