Spring is Here

Jeanne and I knew Spring had arrived when we walked at Charleston Falls on April 5 even though the temperature was only 36 degrees Fahrenheit.

There was still an icy layer on the heap of rocks behind the falling water of the falls.



                                          BUT....


Jeanne spotted the first wild flower we have seen this year at Charleston falls, a purple cress blooming in the shelter of an ash tree stump.


The Ohio Buckeye buds were swollen, close to opening.


And there were buds dangling on the flower stems of the Dutchmen's Breeches.

Was that just three weeks ago? Things have changed so fast.
