Spring Pushes Through


Through the leaf litter and muted colors of seasons passed, the wildflowers of spring have emerged. Coltsfoot (above) is one of the first to push through, decorating the moist edges of the lower meadow and ditch banks along our road.


Twinleaf (above) sets its flower above a deep green broad leaved background.


Among the flowers in our garden, pulmonaria (above) is in bloom by the time we get to the spring tilling.


Trillium (above) usually arrives by the first of May, at the same time that the new leaves are unfurling on the trees above.
