A mix of old and new growth but mostly new. Rainy, overcast weather today. The sun came out for a little bit while I was taking some of these, though. It’s crazy balmy out.
1. Water on deck after brief rain
3. I don't know if this leaf fell on the crocus or if the crocus poked through it but I think it's the latter
4. Leaves of crocus and its papery tunic
5. Crocus in the background, crocus in the foreground
6. Snail on daffodil leaves
7. Old and new clematis leaves
9. Three echinacea and a boxelder bug
10. Oddly colorful leaf with shrub in the background
11. Strange fungus? Puffball? It looks like a certain chocolaty candy I've seen that tastes more like medicine than chocolate
12. I am intrigued by the pinkish color emerging on these old logs. And hey look, a bug.
13. Trout lilies out on the path
14. Water droplets on Dutchman's breeches leaves
15. It's like a little forest in microcosm...moss, tiny sapling, grass, nestled in dead leaves.
16. Trout lilies
17. A blur of trout lilies
18. Bloodroot leaf
20. Little vines twining around trunk. Note all the greenery in the foreground, on the ground.
