Colors of Spring

Spring comes with a profusion of spring flowers, the first butterflies and moths and birds in breeding colors.

What a joy it is to wander through the Big Woods observing the ephemeral spring flowers that bloom before trees’ leaves emerge. In fields and woodland openings we can see butterflies; in those and in other places birds are courting, their bright colors gleaming.

A few of those colors of spring – 

Spring's over now, summer's here with extreme temperatures, but we can all anticipate the return of the colors of spring next year.


  1. That is a fine collection! Our lady slippers are all done.

  2. Great selection of photos of those spring ephemerals, pretty much the same flowers we have except for the dogwood.

  3. Beautiful wildflowers and photos. Lovely captures of the butterflies, Salamander and the Tanager. Gorgeous sunset! Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, have a great weekend.
