The first of the Azaleas are blooming, they are some of my favorite flowers as they look so beautiful in Rain or Sunlight. As they age their color changes creating an exotic wild bouquet from Nature. Once the Azaleas bloom Spring cannot be denied.
New Wildflowers are bursting forth along the bank below the Pagoda on the Hot Springs Mountain Trail. Tiny Wild Violets sprout along side even smaller bluets transforming the green into an iridescent blue sea of Spring life. Nature’s beautiful outburst of joy.
When I reach the junction of the Hot Springs Mountain and Honeysuckle Trail the Forest reveals a lovely secret. High in the hollow of a Tree above me two Nuthatches are flying back and forth carrying and delivering fat juicy grubs. As I am new to bird observations my first thought is there are young being fed. I would appreciate hearing from anyone with birding experience if I have misunderstood the actions I observed today.
