I just got back from the my first tour of the woods this year.
I was looking for bluebells, and found pansies and irises and wild herbs.
The sky was slate stormy, but still.
The redbuds are blooming, and creeping out of the creek banks onto the roads.
The ivy is already clambering up them, mixing the purple buds with the green.
I walked a mile in the woods tonight, and came home singing.
