Spring progresses slowly… like democracy.

This first set of photos was taken a month ago.

Clockwise from upper left: the elderberry is beginning to sprout leaves; “I’m ready for my close-up, Ms. Kat”; the swamp maple in bloom; fishing, not something I would chose to do, especially considering how they had to dress; the alder at lakeside; everyone comes out to enjoy spring.

The following week, everyone’s mind (and other parts) turn to procreation.

Yes, that’s a bald eagle. Getting ready to make more bald eagles.

Next up: the wildflowers.

I impressed the heck out of myself when I looked at this photo on my computer. The dramatic lighting… that just happened. Google images has informed me that these are wood anemones.

Lots and lots of wild violets, although a clump this large is unusual.

What are all those white spots in the woods between our house and our neighbor’s?

It’s these beauties. Trillium. Lots and lots of trilliiums. (Trillia?)

P1010248

What about these with the single shiny leaf?

Sadly, there are lots of these, too. Dandelion wine, anyone?

    Love your photos, especially the trillium and eagles. The tree will probably hide the eagles as they get older, but more pix later, please?

    Love your photos!
    I’ve had a soft spot in my heart for dandelions since the year i made dandelion wine – it tasted like summer in a bottle…
