crazy windy

On this windy day I headed to Maudslay State Park to check the flowers. While there were a few azalea in bloom when I visited a week ago, today I found azalea, rhododendron, and dogwood decorating the landscape with bright flowers.

I could feel the wind, I could hear it, and I could see it in the movement of the flowers.

Don't you love the look of white dogwood against a clear blue sky?

first iris

I was delighted to see my first iris of the season this morning.

It was a beautiful bearded iris in deep purple.

Bleeding hearts decorate the garden.

The shape of the flower matches the name perfectly.

photos! Bedrock Gardens

Tuesday was the first open day of the season at Bedrock Gardens. It was a good day to visit, to wander through the gardens and the sculptures.

I plan to return to visit flowers as they change through the seasons.

ocean afternoon

The northern end of Plum Island was my destination today.

A walk by the ocean satisfied my need for beauty. The sky wore wispy clouds; in the distance I could see fog hovering over the water.

magic light

The light this afternoon was wonderful, a perfect time for a walk in the woods.

These trees live on Field Pond in Harold Parker State Forest.

As I wandered through Bedrock Gardens this afternoon I saw two tulips standing in front of a barrier made of unearthed tree roots.

The unexpected location enhances their beauty.

Leaves are starting to emerge.

They are wearing a spring green color.
