Spring It…

Spring…

All of a sudden…

It’s Everywhere…

It’s Early…

Can it be…

Will our Hopes…

Be dashed…

On cold, hard ice…

As winter takes it’s revenge…

I dashed away…

From a busy day…

For a quick Look at the Woods…

The Trees Tell me…

No…

Spring is Here…

Red Maple lives up to it’s name…

It’s Flowers emerge…

To chase winter’s chill…

Beech are usually late to leaf out…

And their lower Buds still slumber…

But those closest to the Sun…

Can’t contain their Enthusiasm…

My personal Favorite…

Harbinger of Spring…

Acer rubrum…

American Red Maple…

Swamp Maple…

It’s tiny Scarlet Flowers…

Are some of the First…

To Challenge…

Winter’s dreariness…

And i see them everywhere…

Rising from the Low Swampy Pools…

And Flooding the Dune Ridges…

With their welcome Blush…

Pines and Maples…

A Classic Yin Yang…

Evergreen, softwood Pines…

Deciduous hardwood Maples…

Dance so Well together…

A Beautiful Time…

To be in the Woods…

As Leaf and Flower…

Buds…

 

Hold the Promise…

Of Imminent Spring…
