Exploring Nature One Step At A Time

Beautiful Cherry Blossoms Herald An Early Spring

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I had started hiking on West Mountain this morning and ended up on Hot Spring Mountain ( I will post that blog tomorrow).  After a series of strange events I then found myself standing in front of 2 rows of pink.  Spectacular pink Cherry Blossoms have burst forth in the Hot Springs Historic District.  As I began taking close ups of the blossoms a lovely Cedar Waxwing landed on a branch above me.   A quick glance my way and my winged morning companion was its way.  Another winged beauty arrived moments later, an Eastern Comma Butterfly.  It like many other insects was feeding on the tempting nectar of these glorious pink blossoms. A beautiful spring is unfolding in Hot Springs, Arkansas.

Happy Spring, Much Love to ALL!
