In my travels home after work, I drove a portion of a nearby parkway. Wet areas in the surrounding woods play host to scores of spring peepers now singing loudly, advertising for sex. An amazing sound from such tiny creatures but the need is urgent for the puddle waters are temporary!
At home the tiny iris flowers (seen below) are shriveling and the daffodil flower buds are swelling. One flower, the first of the year, burst open.
I asked and She Who Must Be Obeyed steadied the bobbing bloom long enough for me to photograph it.
