The Woods in Bloom (Spring)

After spending several days cooped up because of rain (or planting vegetables in spite of it!), I made it down to the river for a walk again today. Couldn’t believe the changes in just a few short days…wow. The wild apple trees are finished blooming already (missed getting pics of those this year…oops), and there’s a veritable explosion of colour happening. Of course, some of the colourful stuff is pretty tiny and well hidden, but if you take the time to look… 🙂

Not sure what this is...it reminds me of honeysuckle, but it's the wrong colour.

    I’ll have to pull out my book on wildflowers when I get home. So pretty, glad you got out for a walk!
