Deep Forest

May Apples seem to have a fantasy feel to them. They are like huge umbrellas covering the woodland floor. I have found a few treasures underneath, but often think of fairies and gnomes hiding. I listen for tiny giggles, perhaps a glimpse of a little pointy hat, or a beautiful fairy.

A tired and tattered Red Admiral followed me while I roved through the woods. Maybe we met before.

  2. Great photos. Some of those flowers are familiar and some are new to me. I haven't seen May Apples in years. Have never seen them growing in the region I live in now, but we had them in abundance where I grew up (several hours drive south of where I am now.)

  3. Spring is a perfect season for a walk in the woods. You found lots of treasures on this walk. I felt bad for the tired and tattered Red Admiral. The one in the last picture looks much better.

  5. You were in fantasy mode today. I often feel that way when I am out where people do not often intrude. You just never know what creature you might happen upon.

  6. I've seen May Apples but didn't know what they were called. Also, I've never seen them bloom.
    Thank you:)

  11. Spring is so lovely, isn't it? Wonderful photos and I love how you got fanciful about a possible previous encounter with the butterfly. :)
