Nothing Says Spring Like April Flowers
The appearance of flowers is one of the surest signs that Spring has arrived here in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Of course the return of the robins and other migratory birds, the longer days, warmer weather and the leaves on the trees are much appreciated after a long Winter, but its the appearance of the flowers that I think makes us truly know that Spring is here.
Every February I look forward to finding that first snowdrop or crocus flower bursting through the snow. Today I took my camera and macro lens on my daily walk and photographed some of the colorful flowers that are now in bloom, including the many varieties of daffodil.
One of my favorites, the fragrant hyacinth, are also in full bloom in the gardens in my neighborhood.
It was a chilly day today, temperatures were only in the 40’s even with some strong April sun. But I didn’t mind it one bit, not when the flowers are in bloom. I love the Spring!!! Here is a link to a gallery in my website with some more photographs from my walk. Spring flower walk April 15 2020
