Exploring Nature One Step At A Time

First Magnolias, Venus Looking Glass and Baby Birds

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Southern Magnolias line Bath House Row in Hot Springs National Park. From a distance the white blossoms look like popcorn sprinkling the dark green foliage.  Up close the lovely creamy white petals glow in the spring sun.  Sheltered in the leaves baby sparrows await their dad who is bringing them lunch.

Glorious purple Venus Looking-Glass are blooming along the Hot Springs Mountain Trail.  Their star like blooms layer the green foliage with rich color.  Spring grasses ripple in a gentle breeze creating the illusion that the trail is moving. Above me a lovely juvenile Squirrel grooms her still pristine spring fur.

It has been another perfect day in the Forest…

Love to ALL!
