Weekly Photo Challenge: Spring!

I brought my camera out today on a trip to Horicon Marsh Wildlife Refuge, but I didn’t take a single picture.  Spring here in Wisconsin meant barely 50 degrees, windy and overcast.  Although the sight and sounds of sandhill cranes and Canada geese and red-winged blackbirds were quite satisfying, I missed the sun and wildflowers that I’ve seen by this time in previous years.  *sigh*  I remembered that 5 years ago on this date, Steve & I were taking a wildflower class through the McHenry County Conservation District.  We learned to identify all kinds of woodland spring flowers like anemones and violets and jack-in-the-pulpit and May apples.  Haven’t seen but one little anemone this year.  Here she is:first wildflower

Brave little Buttercup!  Do tell your friends that it’s almost safe to come out.  I will wait for them.  🙂

  1. Hey Scillachum
    Lovely photograph…. 🙂
    My Great Grandmother was christened May Apple……..No photographs remain, so my romantic notions of what she may have looked like have never been trampled on and I’ve always had a vision of her as a somewhat fey foresty princess type of creature.
    Her surname was Phipps which kinda destroyed the poetry but you can’t have it all….
