Heading outside with camera in hand in spring is a bit like a treasure hunt. Mother Nature left behind some interesting finds!
White Pine cone
Over the years, I’ve found blossoms on this white pine tree in last spring, but never found any cones. This year, there are several.

Sunshine makes these birch trees glow!

Several stalks of burdock clusters were left standing in spite of winter’s snow.
Part of spring is finding things left behind, but soon there will be new growth out in the yard. I’m ready.

Now that the snow is gone and the yard is drying enough to walk in after heavy rain recently, I was out and about to find some of those interesting (to me, and I hope you) things that catch my camera’s eye.

Rainer Maria Rilke – Early Spring
Harshness vanished. A sudden softness
has replaced the meadows’ wintry grey.
Little rivulets of water changed
their singing accents. Tendernesses,
hesitantly, reach toward the earth
from space, and country lanes are showing
these unexpected subtle risings
that find expression in the empty trees.
