Spring Woods and Garden

I have some photos of a trip in the woods in early June
along with some of my spring garden shots.

A beaver house in a pond:

Trilliums and forget-me-nots:

Purple violets:

Primrose beside my old watering can.
(I pick the old cans at rummage sales, I have five or six. It's an addiction, I tell ya'!:

More trilliums and forget-me-nots:

A turtle sunning himself in the spring sun.
Do you see him?:

Wild violets:

Primrose and a dandelion:

Marsh Marigolds (cowslips):

A hairy fiddlehead!:

I know it is sweltering summer where most of you live...
so it is refreshing for us to review the spring that was.

Have a great day!!

May I use the photo with the watering can as a reference for a sketch and perhaps later a watercolor?

I haven't left a comment in a while, but I read every post and love your pix,

It's hard to ever pick a favorite shot from your photos, but I love the beaver pond, the second shot, and the watering can ones the best. You have such a great eye. I especially love the wildflowers you capture. :)
