    They remind me of hatchlings asking to be fed or little whales surfacing for krill.

    It finally came to me: the colors look like tarnished copper. As interesting as the plant is, the mixture of colors is wonderful.

    I love the feel of this photo, a kind of seep still life. Our skunk cabbage is already starting to unfurl its leaves–we appear to be a month or more ahead of you, Steve.

    Our trees and bushes are off to a very slow start, it seems. Our blackberry bushes are looking good, but the raspberry… hmm, not sure it’s going to make it. We planted a lot of “baby trees” last fall — this is our first year on this property — and we’re hoping that start showing signs of life soon. Send us some good wishes, please!

    • It always takes a few years for new plants and especially trees to take hold. We have a lot of wild raspberries and honestly wish we didn’t. They are mixed in with all the non-lawn areas and grab hold of us if we are not careful. If they were cultivated in nice rows it would be different.I am sure your trees will do fine given time.

  8. A good example of the “more is more” aesthetic.
