Spring Photo Walk

Yesterday I ventured out on foot as far as my continued recovery would allow. Now that spring has hits it full stride, the light is more reliable and the plants more diverse. These two factors combine to make a photo walk worth my time. I wish I had been better when the earliest spring blooms had made their appearances, but, alas, this was was not my year to capture the bloom of early wildflowers like bloodroot and dutchman’s breeches.

I was pleased to get a shot of lilacs, which have had an early bloom this year. Typically the bloom of that bush coincides with Mother’s Day, at least here in northwest Ohio.

Reeds in the wetland preserve that borders my yard . . . From my kitchen window, this reed stand looks dense. Later in the season, this stand will be engulfed by cattails and the like. Yesterday the ground around it was still bare enough to walk straight up to it, and I was surprised at how sparse it actually is.
