Spring’s Arrival Approaches with Sprouting Flora Throughout the Forest

There is so much to see as the Spring revives the still and slumbering earth in the Northeastern woods of Pennsylvania. The weather has been warming and the days are slowly getting longer. I have been out walking just about every day. I am going to continue to seek out emerging plants and figure out what they are. I love to discover new plants and often rediscovering ones that I had forgotten. This is only a small fraction of the plants I have seen so far (and taken the time to photograph and look up). I hope to create a little nature journal throughout the year and share it here.

  1. Amazing photos. I take a lot of photos as well but what I see and what I get are two different things. You are a photographer.

  2. YES – even if it is just mowing (which I did this week) my daughters lawn. ps I only did the back yard – the front is filled with flowering plants and want to wait til they die back so the bees and insects have a chance to get to them! Keep the wonderful pics coming!
