Nature – Early Spring/Late Winter

There are times when I have lots of material to blog about and other days not so much.  A recent walk around downtown to lift my spirits has provided several days of posts with interesting photos.  Today I was back to square one and no idea what would be my inspiration.  I have to clarify and share that most of the time I write my post in the afternoon and schedule it to go live the next morning.  That gives me plenty of time to change things if I need to.

Today I had work in Portsmouth and Chesapeake.  The temperature showed a rather reasonable 55 degrees but it was very overcast and windy so it didn’t feel that warm to me.  I suddenly became inspired to pull out my cell phone and started snapping pictures of a really interesting tree that was missing a lot of its bark.

Then I looked down on the ground and there were these tiny, sweet little purply-blue flowers just beginning to bloom surrounding with happy clover!    As I walked around some bushes there were these reddish-pink flowers blooming!  Spring is teasing me with glimpses of its inspirational beauty.

Lastly, there is the classic ivy creeping over these brick steps.

I’m so glad that I see beauty all around me.  Enjoy the day!

  1. Sher, I’m also so very glad to see the beauty you see all around you. I especially love the “bark, no bark” picture, and the camellia ones are just lovely. Thanks so much for sharing what you see. ❤


    • I wondered what those flowers were called.  Thanks Bren!   To read my daily ramblings on my blog:
