Early April Blooms

I love taking walks to see what's blooming. This week there is bloodroot, scilla, periwinkle, spring beauties, and forsythia, among others. The skunk cabbage leaves are sprouting up and more trees are producing blossoms. The bluebells are getting ready, looking mostly pink at the moment. We also caught a duck taking a nap!

Signs of Spring at Jacobus Park

Spring arrives slowly in Wisconsin; we can have cold temps and snow well into April. But signs of spring are everywhere when you look closely! Below: trillium, tree buds, Virginia waterleaf, skunk cabbage, bluebells, and local wildlife. Credit to my family members for the last three photos; they shared their pics on a day my camera batteries ran out. The last flowers are winter aconite and snow drops.
