It’s another beautiful day in the neighbourhood. The apple trees in the creek are now in full bloom. There are white blossoms everywhere along the creek. I’ve been waiting all spring for this.
After spending some time with the apple trees I decided to check out a part of the creek I don’t normally go it. It’s usually overgrown and can be tough to navigate but at least it’s short.
Catkin on Leaves
Stepping over downed branches and trees I found this lone catkin that had fallen onto the underbrush. I took so many photos of this catkin as the light faded in and out, until the light was just right.
After untangling myself from all the dead branches I moved on to another section of the creek path. Here the Maples are showing off their new bright green leaves. And so ends another day out in the neighbourhood creek.
So it turns out that my favourite photos from today are the same as yesterday (except for a new photo). Go figure.
The mushrooms have done some growing since yesterday afternoon and there seems to be more of them too. This mushroom family is starting to squish each other as they emerge from the ground. Mica caps grow in clusters so this grouping is not unusual.
Little Flower Buds
I have absolutely no idea to whom these flower buds belong to. You’d think I would take a reference photo that showed more of the leaves so I could identify it later but no, I did not. So now I have to wonder what is it and whether I can find it again.
Open Apple Blossom
So I will end today’s post with a fully opened apple blossom. It’s not the same one as the one from yesterday but it’s definitely from a similar tree. Maybe even the same tree. I can’t remember. 😉
