Some sights of spring

The sights of spring are so magical.

Some of the most interesting sights are close to the ground and only become obvious to those who stop, kneel, and take a peek at ground level.

Fern fronds uncurling as they reach for the sky.

Emerging ferns look other-worldly, often covered in tiny hairs. It’s fascinating to watch their fronds spread.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Little bluets

Tiny bluets (Houstonia caerulea) entice us to ground level to appreciate the delicate beauty of each blossom.

 

 

 

 

 

Narcissi

Narcissi brighten the spring landscape where ever they are planted.

 

 

 

 

 

Take some time to wander the landscape in your area and be sure to look downward to discover some amazing spring sights.

New England wanderers can get help identifying woodland blossoms and spring ephemerals using Go Botany, a service of the New England Wildflower Society.

    I’m looking forward to bluets and fiddleheads. Right now, I’m at the point of walking around looking intently for little nubs of green breaking the ground. (The first signs of growth on early hostas and on amsonia have just begun to appear). Enjoy spring!
