The first woodland blooms are always a treat for me. I started with Dutchman's Breeches and went through an array of good friends just emerging. It was a day to expect Spring to have arrived, but not necessarily Nature's plan. I hiked on some steep hills to inspect different levels for blooms, hills formed by ocean reefs of limestone..
This looked like a candle with it's translucence lit by a late day sun.
A fun place to hike, I always hope to find an artifact. Nothing remains of a city from the past other than the happiness carried on a gentle prairie breeze.
