Also called the Fawn Lilly or Dog Toothed Violet, these flowers come from plants rooted and growing for six or more years. Each bulb can be found about a foot or so deep with plenty of company. When you find one, you’ve most stumbled into a whole colony. Its perseverance is our visual treat.
The forest carpet in Northeast Ohio awakens with the arrival of the spring beauties. A personal favorite, they rise above the leaf bed to spread a delicate white pink mantle on the forest floor. A welcome sight indeed.
A timely and rare sunny winter morning gave to me an opportunity to catch this beautiful building at the Wilderness Center in Wilmot, Ohio. The early morning sun made for some great contrast and great shadow-play on the building. I’m adding it along with other entries to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge.
I journeyed on the paths yesterday with the intent of capturing images of transition. Its no longer summer but not quite fall. Most flowers are gone but others shine. Seasonal color lacks vibrancy as the emerald hills fade before the stunning hues of autumn capture our vision. Here are a few images with the reminder that change is just beginning and by design always happening.
He changes times and seasons…He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. Daniel 2:24
