This weekend we went for a walk in the woods behind our house to see what's coming up. I like to look for the tiniest signs of spring, which I believe are some of the most beautiful harbingers of the season in Middle Tennessee.
I would appreciate anyone who can identify any of these miniature miracles.
This may be either a May Apple or a Jack-in-the-Pulpit.
This one's a little farther along
Saw this pretty little white flower
And this tiny purple flower
The little flower called "henbit" spreads into vast carpets that annoy suburban homeowners but up close is quite beautiful.
The redbud trees' blossoms grow right out of its branches
But some trees have little flowers like this
This little stream runs behind our house, but we never get to see this view unless we trudge down the 30-foot embankment and cross to the other side.
We also saw some mushrooms growing on trees
and others growing out of a tree that had fallen across the stream bed last year
