In the walks we've had over the weekend, the only wildflowers I've seen are those shown by the 'spring ephemerals' - those eager weeds that take advantage of the additional warmth and sunshine before the trees expand their leaves and shade out their sunshine: chickweed, henbit, dandelions, bittercress. These flowers of these weeds are tiny, but their numbers are large!! And in the growing, competing grasses show bits of pink and white- not nearly as pretty as the wildflowers that will come later. Still, they're evidence of the season's progression....
We're due for some rain today - again, all welcome.
Japan and the fear of even more disasterous tragedies there are on everyone's mind....prayers, thoughts and hope continue ...
