Back in September I took an early evening walk around the neighborhood to scope out a few things I saw blooming. Seeing these photos once again has me seriously ready for spring and summer to come. I spent some time in the garden today (drafting this on Sunday evening) and it was so great to be doing gardening things, and looking at these photos just has me looking forward to warmth again. Soon…soon.
A new-to-me zizotes milkweed that I found near the rain lilies, Asclepias oenotheroides. The other one I knew nearby was buried under soil and possibly pavement when they re-did the dam and spillway two summers ago.
I think I’ll plan to take more walks this year as I barely took any last year, which was very different than is typical for me. I missed wandering the neighborhood to see what was going on, though now I know some of the wooded lots I used to love have been cleared and homes are being built on them. *sigh*.
