Alas, it seems I am doomed to leave this place every April. Last year, it was a command performance to babysit in South Dakota. This year another family visit to another state, and we will miss four days of spring. Only four days. But this time ofÂ year, it seems like a week’s worth of change happens every 24Â hours.
So I’m adding a few wildflower views,Â if not new species, to my collection this spring, like this single wood anemone,Â but I will also probably post some season appropriate images from previous springs, just to get me, and maybe you,Â in a spring—botanical state of mind.
I searched Google images to confirm my thinking that this was wood anemone, and spotted one pictureÂ among the hundreds that seemed to illustrate well theÂ flower I had seen. I clicked on it, to discover it was mine fromÂ the spring of 2004.
