“Watercolour Forest”

“Watercolour Forest”

“What season is it?, I ask. The cooler parts of the forest are still a bit subdued compared to others, with just a blush of colour, a snapshot in the forest’s story.”
– Ed Lehming

Over the span of a week and a few kilometers of trail, there are vast differences in how quickly parts of the forest mature at this time of year. In stark contrast to the wildflowers and bright leaves I shared a few days ago in my “Spring Forest Trilliums” post, this part of the forest is showing a significant delay.

I can’t recall the exact location along the trail but I do remember stopping because I was struck by how little colour there was and the fact the the forest floor was mostly leaf covered, with very little ground cover emerging. It felt like I had stepped back a week in time. The two images do show just how fast things progress in spring, though this one does have a subtle watercolor appearance, thus the title I chose for it.

“Daffodil Trio”

“Daffodil Trio”

“Spring dances with joy in every flower and in every bud letting us know that changes are beautiful and an inevitable law of life.”
― Debasish Mridha

And the flowers keep blooming. Every day more colours, more varieties, right from the garden or in the woods. It’s so nice be able to have this variety available and to be able to create good photos of them. As I’ve said previously, we tend to fail to appreciate the fine details in things we see. I see the flowers as beautiful, on first view, but am finding them utterly stunning when I get up close really ‘look’ at them

Now, I’m waiting patiently for some lovely coral tulips, that were given to us by my mother-in-law, to open up. They did it yesterday, but closed back up before I had a chance to photograph them. Today, it seems it’s too cold. Perhaps tomorrow? Stay tuned.
