The cherry blossom trees around our area are all starting to bloom. They are such delicate flowers and it is not long before their tiny petals cover the ground like snow.

Sun Shining Through

Capturing this photo was actually quite a challenge. It was a dreary, cloudy day. However, every once in a while, the clouds would break and the sun would come shining through. The warm light brightening up the forest only lasted seconds at a time. This particular shot came after about 15 minutes of this game with the sun breaks.

Moss Carpet

Happy First Day of Spring!

I have to admit, I was relieved and a little giddy when I saw this photo on my computer screen after uploading it from my camera. Sometimes when you are out shooting, you never know if the true beauty of something you see is going to come through in photo form. I loved this scene and hoped a photo would do it justice. My favorite part is the shadows of the trees above on the mossy carpet below.

Just Opening

Trilliums are by far my favorite flower. They are so meaningful to me. I spotted my first bloom this past
weekend and was thrilled.

Mushroom Trio

Conditions have been pretty perfect for mushroom growing lately. Warm days, damp nights. This trio was my favorite fungi find from over the weekend.
