More than he seeks…

In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.

– John Muir

Impatient for spring, I went looking for Hepatica in bloom.  I found none.  But I did find plenty of signs of spring:

Oh, and there were plenty of these fellows, too, though this picture is from last year:

  1. Jennifer, thank you for identifying the Trout Lily leaf. I have seen those single leaves popping above the soil, but I’ve never been around to see the flower in bloom. Now I know what to look for!
