Spring Color Arrives

Whew, been quite busy getting new prints ready for my upcoming first-of-year art show. I’ll be in Stillwater, Oklahoma soon for the Stillwater Arts Festival (if you live nearby, hope to see you there!). And I’ve been busy teaching a 6-week class in digital SLR photography; I have a wonderful group of photographers that are eager to learn new skills and techniques. That always makes for a great class!

Although I’ve been quite busy with all these activities, I managed to get my camera out and walk the woodline of my property, checking out the progress of woodland wildflowers. I’ll post about that in another post, but today’s post features some of the many bulb flowers now growing in/around my woods (note: these were not planted there by me … instead, my little squirrel friends love to dig up bulbs in the garden and carry them to the woods. In many cases, the bulbs eventually root there and although not intended, it does give a nice color to the otherwise drab woods in late winter/early spring!).

Here are a few of the spring flowers now in bloom:

A single Grape Hyacinth has been re-planted to the woods near the road leading to my home:

And there are lots of different varieties of Daffodils in bloom:

In my next post, I plan on featuring the status of woodland wildflowers at my home.
