Spring Comes to the Hudson Highlands

Though it is wet and foggy this morning, Spring is definitely in the air!

I've been out photographing all morning (just finished wiping the mud off my camera gear). Here, especially for my NYC friends, are some images of Spring. I expect we'll be hearing the Peepers (thousands of tree frogs who live in the woods & marshes) any night now.

Snowdrops are always the first to push through the leaves. They have been open for a couple of weeks now.

Some of the brightest greens of early Spring are in the mosses.

How is that for a fungus?! Looks like the tail of a whale breaking the surface.....

The Lenten Roses are open right on schedule. It is always such a thrill to see them nodding in the leaves.

Last but not least, the Pussy Willows. Happy Spring, everybody!


  1. These photos remind me of the spirit of your South Africa posts -- the promise of Spring during this cold yucky weather. Plus, I thought that fungus was a large toad!

    Nice to read about MTV overseas. Their HIV campaigns seem a lot more vital than our Rock the Vote.
