Dead Dog Creek Ravine, April

 The Saturday before Easter:  finally, the sun has come out and the temperatures are 'seasonal.'  Here's the April installment of the woods along Kellogg Ravine.
Virginia bluebells (mertensia virginica)

Scilla--beautfiful, but non-native and aggressive



Skunk cabbage in leaf (see last month's photo)

  This oak tree fell about 10:00 a.m. today, according to Lee, whose house is on the edge of the ravine. (He came out as I walked by.)  He was drinking coffee on the porch and saw it happen!  Fortunately it fell to the ravine side and not on the house.

There's an alligator in the woods!

  1. Great photos, Nann.

    I was recently talking with someone about a Facebook status that my sister in Maine (Napes) made about the crocus blossoms right at the base of the house. The person I was talking with was from Louisiana, and said: "What is a crocus?"

    We don't have the cold weather needed for bulbs like crocus or tulips or daffodils.

    We do have other flowers (magnolias are out here), and don't have to shovel or scrape the frost off the windshield.


Thanks for stopping to read my blog. I can't respond to every comment, but be assured that I appreciate each one.
