Spring has been mighty impatient with the winter. Quince, forsythia, plums, cherries and pears are all in bloom. Forget- me-nots and spring beauties add color to the awakening turf. The air smells wonderful. The colors are breathtaking after a winter of desaturation. But this post is not about those colors.

Beautifully banded shale found on the morning walk.

A matched set, separated naturally.
Buffleheads take off.

Thistle Rosette
Trod not upon me, sayeth the thistle. Despite the its prickly nature, the thistle rosette displays radial symmetry.
Spiny
A land urchin awaits barefoot prey.
