An example of nature as a gardener is the narcissus below came up about 18 feet away from the closest bulbs I planted a long time ago.
I also had something similar happen with Helleborus.
I planted the Helleborus in the top left part of the shot above. The Helleborus below sprung up on the other side of my yard.
I've had irises pop up in the front yard when the nearest ones were in my back yard.
I think squirrels dig up bulbs and then bury part of them somewhere else so they become the gardener.
One morning I went out to shoot the sunrise and spotted a lot of birds singing in full voice.
I guess everyone is calling for a mate.
Perhaps the brown thrasher below is taking an after mating bath.
I love to catch the flowering trees against a blue sky.
The first of the variety of Narcissus below are blooming in my yard.
My money plants are starting to come up everywhere because I let the seeds drop out of their white pockets in the summer.
I caught the bird below in full voice.
The periwinkle has started blooming.
The rufous-sided towhee below is hunting for food.
I noticed in our extended forecast that there is a chance of snow here next week. Usually the latest it snow in central NC where I live is early March so that would be unusual. Click for the home of Nature Notes.
