Still Learning To See

Away from it all for an hour

I often get out this time of year to enjoy the spring ephemerals, flowers that bloom for a brief period of time before the trees leaf out. Last week, despite a slow, cold spring, I went to one of my favorite spots for an hour in the corner of an old farm field.

Clearly I was early—only ramps, cohosh, spring beauty, and a single trillium, but it was magical to be in that sun-fueled environment ready to explode.


But lots of other living things too, part of this amazing world we live in, viruses included.

I’ll get back again this week and will, I’m sure, find another dozen species in flower and many other interesting things to see.

    What a treat, John–really enjoy how you find bits of beauty no matter what the time of year or weather! I look forward to seeing more from this corner of “an old farm field” 🙂
