Dutchman's Breeches

I was going to show you a long post about my walk in the woods, but it is taking far too long to edit the 300 photos, so I will show you the ones I fell in love with this morning...
All the spring wildflowers are blooming, before the trees leaf out and cut off their sunlight. I spent over two hours getting down on the ground, and getting up again, to move to the next treasure, and the next morning, I wondered why my legs hurt...
Need I tell you that I am going again this week, to do it all again?
I am linking this post with Nature Footstep's Blo-Ma.

You are so silly. I can imagine you doing this. You do know how to enjoy your life.

I'd be the one sitting on the bench drinking coffee or tea while holding your extra camera stuff .. asking are you done with that one.

XO,
JC

Lovely flowers, the best treasures you can find.

It's a great workout and it's so much fun that you don't even mind doing it! I did it myself on Sunday. :)

Den ser lite rolig ut blomman som om den satt upp och ner. Den är fin ändå.
Ha en fin onsdag

Hi Judy, the flowers are definitely lovely as well as the photos. And i am intrigued why some plants are named and described as Dutchman's. There is the Dutchman's pipe, and now for the first time i read Dutchman's breeches! hahaha it is funny. I wonder why the Dutch are some older generations comparisons!!!
