May 2018: Colorful Memories

After an agonizingly slow start, Spring in Central New York did not disappoint! The month of May has been a delightful mix of activity in living color, plants and animals alike. I’m posting selected highlights, in chronological order.

    • Thanks Betsy. The Red Trillium just might be the most popular wild flower that I publish. The color is unlike any other. Even the botanists can’t handle it. Some call it red, some call it purple, some just dance around the subject! My solution is to take a picture and let the viewers decide for themselves. 🙂

  1. They are all exquisite, but the Trillium took my breath away. There’s just something about that flower that pulls at my heartstrings. Thank you for this lovely photo essay of your delightful spring.

  2. Loved all these photos. Especially the apple blossoms. Please keep them coming. Missing New York right now.
