Sorry for being missing in action for a few days. Wonderful time of year, and we're very busy. I'm also drawn more and more to write about living in a wheelchair, but that's taking a lot of thought and background reading. May is of course the time of year when I'd most like to be headed down the trail in the woods, but I can only rely on memories. So I'm going to pull up some pictures from the past to share.
Spring seems to be dragging its feet arriving this year. You've been having warmer days in your area then in the Essex County district with the Great Lakes surrounding us.ReplyDelete
Be Safe and Enjoy the Memories.
It's about time.
Trilliums in the hundreds, in the wild, truly so beautiful. You could so easily write a book about your experiences with the wheelchair and all else since your surgery. For those in a similar position , and those of us with our blog connection as friends from afar. We are finding autumn is showing its colours as the maple shrubs start losing some leaves, and spring bulbs are shooting through the soil. This seems way too early, usually much later for those exciting green tops to come up.ReplyDelete
That's the most trillium I've ever seen in one place. How cool is that? I look forward to your writings about your new situation. :-)ReplyDelete
Haven't seen white trilliums in that abundance since i was in college over 55 years ago and the botany students took a field trip. Today I found the only one I've ever seen in northcentral Pennsylvania that wasn't behind a deer-proof fence (it was on a very steep slope) -- white-tailed deer have eaten all the rest.ReplyDelete
Wild flowers add so much beauty to our earth. Have you considered a drone with a camera to continue your explorations?ReplyDelete
These are just beautiful...I don't think I have ever seen the white trillium. We always seem to find the dark red...I even have some of it here at home. I think the woods flowers are more beautiful than anything cultivated! I really need to get to the woods and find some bloodroot and more Mayapples....and would love to have some trout lilies, and goldenseal...ReplyDelete
The wild flowers are so pretty. I think of you so often when I'm out on my morning walks.ReplyDelete
Beautiful pictures here …ReplyDelete
All the best Jan
Trilliums here will turn up around that time. The tulip beds are a bit late this year- I'm hoping tomorrow will have made something of a difference in their growth as compared to a few days ago when I walked at one of the major sites.ReplyDelete
Lovely photos .Its been quite pleasant the past few days here , lots of sunshine but today it rained . I love walking in our valley woods so peaceful and pretty . All our spring flowers are in full bloom . We have been out in the yard and gardens getting it all ready for the summer and watching all our spring birds return and enjoying them and bees and butterfly's . Our grass is thick and green and needs to be cut again . Hope you can get out and enjoy the sunshine and some better weather up your way soon .ReplyDelete
Like Happyone's comment I toothink of you when Pheebs and I are out walking in the forest. I notice the flat sections of the trail where I think, I bet Stew could make it along here.ReplyDelete
about two more weeks for our Trillium, I hope I find a spot that is filled with them like you did!ReplyDelete
