From The Front Yard

On Sunday the prairie anemone (Anemone patens) was just opening up to the world.


On Monday the twins were in full flower.


Their lives are short. The blooms only last a few days, but while they are here they bring great joy.

Lovely pictures Leah! I think those are one of my favorite flowers, they are so simple and they herald spring.

Leah J. Utas said...

They're one of my favorites, too, Reb. I remember seeing hillsides full of them in the sandhills. Sigh.

Thank you, Thomma Lynn. I love to see them in the wild, too.

Did everyone remember to write the Law of Abundance check this month? Last chance today, I believe.
