A Beautiful Spring – Weekly Photo Challenge

As you can see from my earlier post, we are happily rocking the spring here in North Central Texas (Dallas/Fort Worth area). And although we have had a few unusually cold nights, all in all, we are having a fabulous spring. Much cooler and longer than any previous years. I guess the season is taking its time to move on (just like stubborn winter!).

But you know? I love this time of year. Not quite as much as I love Fall, but almost.

One of the first blooms to make their appearance in the spring are the wild clover. They pop up in the yard just before the first mow of the new season. I blogged about them in Spring of 2011 (also a weekly photo challenge) right in this post here. See? I told you I loved them and so does my sweet pup.

Unfortunately, we have mowed them down and weeded them out (in the stark tradition of having a unified green fairway lawn). I don’t know why I can’t talk my husband into having a wildflower yard. Wouldn’t that be spectacular? A nature photographer’s dream? I can see birds and butterflies flitting about. Lots of variety and color. He wouldn’t even have to mow…

Hmmmm, maybe next year…

In the meantime, frozen in time before their untimely trim. My gorgeous yard clover captured with my most favorite Nikon.

Aren’t they beautiful? I love how they kick off spring with such pop and flair.

    1. Yes, my mom-in-law has a bed of them. Mine are weeds. 😦 I need to try and move them one year, but I tried that with the wild violets and they stopped growing in the bed where I planted them. Darn it.
