Eastern White Pine

Early in spring, the Eastern White Pine trees have unique flowers.  I’ve gone back to the trees (luckily, in my yard) several times to catch their progress.

Blossoms Today

This is the first year I’ve found blossoms lingering so late!  Mother Nature seems to be having a good year.

Spring Treasures

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.

In the sunshine

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.
