A springtime walk

Today was an absolutely gorgeous day, and so I thought I would take advantage of it by taking a nice, long walk. While I prefer to walk in the woods or on hiking trails, I had to make do with strolling through some nearby housing developments. But that doesn't mean that there wasn't anything worth seeing. Below are some pictures that I took on my little trek, mementos of this beautiful day. I hope you enjoy them.



Springtime buds, possibly Magnolia


 Male flowers illuminated by sunshine (possibly Red maple, or Acer rubrum)


Unsure of the identity of these early tree flowers. Perhaps I will go back when the leaves are out!


Seeds emerging from a pod of what looks like a milkweed, but I am unsure of the species.


Ornamental crab apples that have overwintered 


 Tiny weed Veronica persica, or Persian speedwell, growing along a sidewalk


 Mini daffodils (genus Narcissus) near a mailbox


Flowers from a garden shrub Chaenomeles speciosa or 'Japanese quince'


I hope you have enjoyed these photos- please let me know if you know the names of any of the plants I have not labeled. 

Have a wonderful day, May all beings be happy!

  1. Those photo takes of yours are absolutely outstanding!! I'm not too good with knowing the names of flowers though, so sorry about that.

    I and my wife love walking. Not long ago we were both really sick and had a doctors appointment, but even though the clinic was a long hike from where we live, we decided to walk instead of taking the easy way of getting there, in which I must say was a very nice.
