03.22.2019 The Breeches are Coming

It’ll still be about three weeks before they show up.  Although the Berkshires and Adirondacks may see snow today, for us it’s just a Spring shower.

  1. The ghostly curve at the bottom right is a nice touch. I might have been tempted to crop off the bottom fourth of the picture to center the breeches vertically in the frame.

    What a beautifully composed image this is. You’re such a pro! 🙂 I’m sorry you still have to wait, but any day now, they will appear….and hopefully you can take a few more photos of them, becasue we don’t have them here! 😉 (Apparently we should, according to the range maps, but I’m not sure exactly where they might be….).

    • Thank you, Lynn. These are growing below some ledges where they get late day sun before the canopy closes up for the summer. I guess the waiting makes their arrival that much sweeter but I would mind a slightly less sweet early arrival.

    Beautiful grouping, Steve, and against a great background. Gives you something to look forward to, eh? 🙂

    When I read ‘breeches’ in your title, I thought right away of Dutchman’s breeches — but the weather condition, not a flower. When I was a kid, I learned to call those little patches of blue in a cloudy sky “Dutchman’s breeches.” Country wisdom said when they were flying on the cloudy clothesline, fair weather would follow.

    Cloudy or sunny, that’s one beautiful flower. Even with so many flowers grouped together, it doesn’t feel crowded or cramped; every bloom gets to shine.

    • That’s a new usage I had not heard of until now, Linda. These are beautiful flowers and I eagerly await them annually. I had so many to choose from, but these were displayed so nicely. Thanks.


  9. As you wait for spring, you’re filling the breaches with breeches.
