WednesdayWalk Challenge A bloomin' stroll around my yard.jpg

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

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.

 
 
May 2 Wed Walk 19.JPG
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!

 
 

Be sure to visit @tattoodjay's post this week, Wednesday Walk week 3 Downtown Milford for some awesome captures, and more information about this challenge!

Happy Wednesday!

Thanks so much, @tattoodjay, for both the kind words, and the tip. And yes, hard to complain about the dank rainy days when they produce color and growth like this!
