Anyone Can Do Spring


 

 "Anyone can do Spring," sniffed a horticulturist in a garden magazine.  And it seems that way -- Nature is so obliging with so many wild things blooming while the weeds have not yet taken over.



Fresh colors and  the feeling of a new beginning permeate the land.


Daffodils, planted years ago and ignored thereafter,
 are like grace notes amongst the wild bloom.


Volunteer apple trees cover themselves in glory.


Even the lowly dandelion plays its part -- 
from modest yellow flower to a miniature exploding galaxy.


 Rebirth and resurrection on every hand.

Oh, yes, anyone can do Spring.

And a trillium to you, and raise you a dogwood.

How welcome Spring is this year! As always I love your photos. But particularly the geometry in the dandelion as it gets ready to MAKE BABIES! ARGH! and AHHHH.

That's the prettiest take on a dandelion I ever saw.

Dandelions, more than a beautiful bloom, the leaves are nutritious, the buds tasty, the blooms and roots useful, and they're great ground cover:)
