Ten weeks in review

At the end of the winter I decided to document the changing of the seasons through spring into summer, following the melting of the snow, leaf-out of the trees and the blooming of the wildflowers. I chose a couple sites to do this at. One was the creek that flows under the road a short distance from my parents’. I cross this creek every time I visit my parents, and for a while I was going there every week or two, so it was a great opportunity, and very picturesque.

This week when I stopped, I could barely see the creek for the trees that had leafed out so completely since my last visit. I felt I’d reached the endpoint, and am posting the series now that it’s finished. Unfortunately, I missed last week, and it seems to have been one of the largest steps. The last photo is rather startlingly green as a result!

  1. Great set of pictures. I went to a bush last evening and could hardly find the trail. The vegetation has exploded, as has the mosquito population!

    Thanks, Ruth. It’s amazing how fast these things grow! My parents’ place is full of mosquitoes, too, but I’ll take them over blackflies.

    Glad you enjoyed it, AgedCat.

  3. What an awesome sequence of photos. Well done! Found you via the Festival of Trees…

    Thanks, Dave! Glad you enjoyed it!

  5. I like how the creek widens and narrows again. This would be a nice series for a children’s science book.
