Time is flying by...

...I just drove through East Valley Park on my way home from the postoffice--it contains a Missouri Natural Area called Isley Park Woods, and an amazing display of spring wildflowers every April.

I've already missed almost all the bloodroot, but pale corydalis, spring beauties, bellwort, false rue anemone and dogtooth violet are in abundance...and I want to PAINT them! Nothing was blooming over the weekend--that I could see from the road, anyway--or I would have started then. My guess is that the bloodroot flowers were hiding under those big umbrella leaves; I found one that hadn't bloomed yet, so I'll try for it tomorrow...

So much to do, so little time...

Thank you! They're lovely flowers, related to borage, not surprisingly.
That's probably the most beautiful thing anyone's ever done on the way back from the Post Office... ;-)
LOL! Well thank you!
