April 29


This squirrel was eating maple flowers.  This is the only time I've seen one do this.

See its little hand, under its nose, holding the flowers?

I don't know what this yellow stuff is.  Very low-growing.  3-4"?

As you can see in the next image, the petals are shiny, almost like they are coated in something.... 

Species tulips.

Cool clouds.

Violet-covered bank.

Every little purple dot, above, looks like this, up close and personal.

More clouds..............

This shows what the forsythia look like this year.  Mostly bare of bloom, with a few scattered flowers.  This specimen is unusual -- it has way more flowers than most of ts kin.

This is the same cluster of maple-tree flowers we've been watching.  I wonder why the flowers-that-are-turning-into-seeds grow out on those long stem-like thingies..........

The chartreuse bits are growing into the wings that will fly the maple seeds away from the mother tree.

Daffodils, in the hard, slanting late-afternoon sun.
