Status of the Blooms & Earth Day

Wisteria (Wisteria frutescens) – Poolesville, Maryland

So many blooms are bursting forth now that it’s impossible to keep up with all of them. Instead, I’ll just show some of my favorites from the area where we live, with these photos that I recorded yesterday during my daily walk around town. In case you haven’t guessed, spring is one of my favorite times of the year – with all the birds singing, the flowers blooming, and fresh scents in the air. It’s a marvelous time!

The fragrant and gorgeous wisteria vines are blooming both by the town hall and the library, and carpenter bees are swarming all around the blossoms by the hundreds. The redbud trees are blooming everywhere that I know of — an explosion of bright vibrate pink amidst the fresh spring greens. Many — but not all — of the dogwood trees are blooming in the area, with their showy whites and delicate pinks. And lastly, the more earthy Jack-in-the-Pulpit plants, their dark greens and browns hidden in the shadowy parts of the woods.

P.S. – Happy Earth Day!
