Exploring Nature One Step At A Time

Early Spring Arrivals in Purple and Blue

I sit inside today watching lightning strikes, pea size hail and heavy rain.  The darkening sky mimics night as a series of storms blow through for a forecast of five hours.

When my husband and I took a quick hike yesterday the sky was a brilliant blue with a spectacular winter sun warming the Rocks and Forest floor.  Beautiful patches of Bluets, Chickweed and Dog Violets dotted the park trail and road edges.  A familiar scurrying sound was ever present as we interrupt lizard sunbathing on the trail edges.  A big male Prairie Lizard flashes his bright blue belly scales from on top of a cluster of Rocks.  It had not rained for 5 days but the soil was saturated and seeping on several trails. It appears as if the drought has lifted in time to create a spectacular spring for 2013.

Love to ALL!

  1. Beautiful photos baby. This blog reminds me of why I so much love hiking in the forest over the city (though I do enjoy it too)…….It’s just amazing the things we see; and how you are able to capture them in such beautiful detail….x0x0x
