Nature’s Splendor at Home

Yellow rose

I have been pretty down lately trying to figure out how to get a new camper this year, and finally coming to terms with the fact that I will have to rebuild the old one.  But getting outside and seeing what is going on as nature shows off her spring productions really helps lift my spirits.

Not only are flowers blooming and fruit trees putting on fruit, but the wild edibles are popping up everywhere, too.

Baby Japanese plums

I took 125 photos yesterday, but will post the ones that symbolize the season best.

Pine

Young poke salad plant

Rosebud

This is where Metamucil comes from (psyllium husks)

Wild strawberry flowers

Our neighbor raises honey bees. I wonder if this will give an oniony flavor to his honey! 🙂

This greenbrier shoot was so tender and juicy that I broke it off 8 inches down the stem. The whole thing was tender and sweet. A real treat!

Blackberry flower beginning to unfold

Indian strawberry flower and caterpillar

Flowers fading and fruit forming. Not sure if these are crabapples or hawthornes.

Baby black cherries
