I am really enjoying all of the green as I get ready to plant my kitchen herb garden. Some herbs will be seeded directly into the dirt in a week or two. I used to wait until memorial day but in recent years i have been planting in mid-May.
The blooming has commenced. Spring is shorter this year which means the crabapples are blooming just as the tulips are opening and the lilacs are not far behind.
A close-up of a fern I found while biking through the woods. Ferns are ancient and amazing too. The picture was taken with a mobile phone with a macro lens added on. I especially like the colors.
Taken close-up with my mobile phone using a macro lens. Almost makes me want to get a macro lens or my camera.
I don’t know what kind of moss this is. it grows on fallen trees and is a beautiful bright green. Take a hike in the woods and look down. You can’t miss it. Oh and happy May 5th!
Unless you know where to look you won’t notice that wild ginger is blooming. The flowers hide close to the ground. Ginger can be found in wet wooded areas. The leaves appear before the tree leaves open and are easy to spot because there is little that is green on the forest floor this time of year.
