It All Seems To Happen At Once

It wasn’t that many days ago that very little seem to be changing. The grayish brown winter landscape in central Ohio was tenacious this year. Now, from one day to the next, the landscape looks markedly different. Now, warblers pass through on their northern migration. Yellow Tiger Swallowtail and Mourning Cloak butterflies seem to defy the cold morning air taking flight long before you would expect. Trees with buds one day magically have leaves the next. Spring wildflowers, such as Dutchman’s Breeches and Toadshade Trillium, are in a race with tree buds in the canopy overhead. The buds will soon be leaves bringing an end to the spring wildflower celebration for another year. Click on images for a better look.
