With all my working in the garden, I didn’t have a chance to walk by the brook for a few days. When I came back, I found these little beauties. The woods is absolutely carpeted with Trout Lilies. I even thought about transplanting some for our yard, but read that they take several years to settle in and bloom. So why not just enjoy them where they are?
There is so much beauty everywhere I walk–singing catbirds and cardinals, flowering cherries and magnolias, even just the leaves opening up on the trees are so magnificent. The ferns are stretching out, and swamp cabbage is green along the brook. Violets, dandelions and wild strawberries are flowering in the lawn. Meanwhile life is busy, but I have to steal some moments to stop and enjoy it all.
