A walk on the wild side ... Thursday, 3/5/15
Wildflower, that is. Yesterday I took my camera with me on our morning walk and stopped a couple of times to take pictures. Part of our walk is in the woods and part is along our road where people have planted bulbs. I know they're not wildflowers, but they sure were pretty. A few of these are even in our yard. I grew up in Niagara Falls, where bright yellow Forsythia bloomed every spring beside our house. I admire it very much, and in these parts it's a stunner. Deer seem to leave it alone, also, always a good thing. Since I don't have any in our yard, I aim to plant a bush or two. While it's still a tad early, flowers sure make it seem like spring! I know, I know, spring forward an hour this weekend....
