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!
