Various wildflowers

  1. It has been a fantastic week for wildflowers in our corner of the world. The warm February followed by a cold March has compressed the blooming season so that everything seems to be blooming at once. My wife and I have been out in the woods and glades every day since Monday.

    Here are a few from today only.

    1. Wood anemone

    Nice Jim! We've been getting warm afternoons, so the snow is deflating, but it will still be about a month and a half before any flowers bloom here. We now have 15 hours 20 minutes of sunshine, and it is light from 5:30 AM until 10:30 PM. We are gaining 7 minutes/day of sunlight.
     
  5. More beauties Jim!
     
  6. Nicely captured evidence of spring new growth. I love that you name each one....not that I will remember but ...
     
  7. Thanks, guys. I just record what nature provides.
     
  8. Thanks, Steve. You have beautiful scenery up there, but I'm glad our growing season is a bit longer.:)
     
  9. Thanks, Mike.

    Thanks, Bob. My wife is a walking encyclopedia of wildflowers and she insists on naming and captioning all of our flower photos.

  10. Terrific work as usual, Jim! And Beth's expertise is a very good complement to your photography.:D
     
  11. Thanks, Eric. Actually, it started out the other way. I got into DSLR photography back in 2005 to help her get better pictures of wildflowers.
     
  12. You probably mentioned that to me earlier, Jim; in any case, the two of you constitute a formidable and admirable team.
