There is a new meme at Rambling Woods which I was intrigued by. To learn more you can click on the badge above or Rambling Woods. Basically all you need to do is step outside, pay attention to what is going on and post a photograph, art, poem, anything you want to serve as your nature notes. Then leave a comment and link at Rambling woods to let her know you have participated.All of the photographs I'm using for my first nature notes post were taken yesterday and change is in the air, on the ground, every which a way I look. The dogwood branch above is the first thing I see when I step out my side door and the buds are getting plumper by the hour. Before long they will open for the dogwood flowers I enjoy.
When I step into my back garden I am practically knocked out by the scent of the daffodils and narcissus. I had early yellow daffodils and narcissus that were zapped by snow the first week of March but a second round are blooming. These are almost all white ones.I do have a number of different varieties blooming and some have yellow, orange, or red centers.When I went to get my mail, the male cardinal stayed up in the tree above my mailbox singing at the top of his lungs. I realized the female was deep in the bush which is behind my mailbox and I suspect she was protecting her nest.
When I was walking in my back yard I spotted my first clusters of wild violets which was a treat.
If you have any nature notes you would like to post, please visit Rambling Woods.
