I don’t put much thought into April Fools Day but I must say I was a bit of fool walking in the mosquito storm encountered this April first 2015. They were thick and wicked and swarmed my head each and every time I paused for a photo. I’ve lived here forever and never felt like my face was being eaten off by tiny, swarming insects. Not good. Yet, the beauty of the woods was undeniable.
Here is what I saw.
The wildflowers and dogwoods were amazing!
And I’m not sure if y’all have Maypops or not. To be honest I don’t even know if that is their proper name. But they come bursting forth across the forest floor each spring bearing lovely leaves, flowers and fruits. I’ve loved them as long as I can remember.
Aren’t they pretty?
And this I’ve never seen before….
Neither did this butterfly….
