  • April snow
    What a cruel trick the weather played on all the daffodils and hummingbirds that have now been spotted in Indiana.
  • Getting a head start

Various daffodils patches around my yard are in bloom.

Spring flowers

I never get over the beauty of daffodils in the spring. This week they are in full bloom everywhere. Foster Park and Main Street have really nice displays of daffodils.

I cut some that have popped up in my yard and took them to a friend in a nursing home.

I also noticed bloodroot in the woods while going for a walk today. I will have to take my camera with me the next time I go.
