A clump of grass, an island in a spring swamp. The zoom lens and rippled water created an almost Impressionist painting feel to this digital image. All photos clickable to enlarge.
Cherry blossoms on Main Street.
Daffodils on the edge of the woods.
This azalea at Pink Gardens is almost ten-feet tall.
Two-toned Daffodil and Cedar tree.
Sea of daffodils in front of the town library. Annabelle Hydrangea cropped and ready to leaf out in background.
Chive pot is coming along nicely.
Wild violets in a tiny vintage bottle.
Not a good forsythia year, hopefully this bush will fill out by next year.
Skunk cabbages, Symplocarpus foetidus, line the edges of this spring swamp. Sky reflected nicely in the water. "Peepers" in this swamp have been singing since March, such a Spring sound.
Flower pots and boxes freshly planted in front of a store in town.
My garden-within-a-garden has Hosta, Siberian Iris, Tiger Lilies, Day Lilies, Spiderwort, Sedum, Lily-of-the-Valley and wild Violets.
Spring green of the earliest leaves goes beautifully with the multiple blues in the sky.
Jack-in-the-Pulpit blooming next to my front steps. Ten-foot Azalea can be seen in the background.
Top of the aforementioned Azalea. The magenta flowers, bright blue sky and spring green leaves remind me of impressionist colors.
Arrangement of Narcissus in the studio.
One of my family "heirloom" primroses has been moved multiple times wherever I have lived and is a joy to see bloom each spring.
