While I was able to jump into the first week of @tattoodjay's Wednesday Walk Challenge, I missed last week for a couple of reasons. One, road trip with hubby to visit a new doc (more on that in a future post). Two, POURING RAIN ALL DAY!
However, what a difference 7 days make! For this week, I decided to stroll around our yard and capture all the bloomin' things that are suddenly everywhere (in marked contrast to my initial post, that showed where things would eventually grow - LOL).
These shots are in the order I took them, earlier today (May 2nd 2018) in my Durham, NH yard.
Our landlord's memorial tree (not sure of the variety) is starting to bloom
A closeup of the blooms
Backlit by the sun
REALLY backlit by the sun!
The daffodils seemed to explode overnight!
I guess spring is truly here
The white violets have started popping up...
...as have the more traditional violet violets.
Totally blanking on what these will eventually bloom into...LOL!
And May would not be complete without Mayflowers (aka Trailing Arbutus)
The small lilac bush our landlady planted last year is getting ready to bloom
Greenery is popping up everywhere!
Our landlady's strawberry patch is growing...
...as is our landlord's rhubarb.
Hey, can you guess where our septic leech field is? 😂
There's even all kinds of greenness growing in the woods.
I love that, year after year, a bunch of Solomon's Seal grows on this granite stone.
I'm going to try to remember to include this shot each week,
because there's going to be an explosion of color here very soon!
