Into the cemetery

The Forsythia bushes in the cemetery are trimmed every Autumn.
I always think they look strange when they are in bloom.

There is one area that is left natural.

It is here I enjoy walking.

Today I saw a large area in Hen-bit
and wild Johnny Jump-ups!

Such a sweet wild flower.

Johnny Jump-up
is my wild flower in April.
I walked for an hour in the wind.
I was very excited to see the Johnny Jump-ups.
I just love Spring.

Oh look at how they trim that bush. And how it is thus covered with blooms, the following year. Interesting look. :-)

But I love the small ones... -happy sigh-

I love Spring too. It is my favourite season after the long dark days of Winter. I love the little heartsease pansy too :)

Would you like to come and join in the Hokey Cokey? You will need a wiggly tail... :)

Oh i hate it when they give forsythia a haircut. They ridiclous sometimes. Well those don't look too bad, just a pair of yellow exotic mushrooms.

Dear Mari-Nanci,
I like the natural flowing branches of the Forsythia. When the bushes are trimmed I think they look silly! LOL
All things look very cute when they are little, even Forsythia!

Dear Wildlife Gardener,
You have so many tadpoles! How fantastic. I do love the frogs and the toads.
I so love you calling the little pansy a "heartsease pansy."
I always love to visit your Gardens. Thank you for the invitation.

Dear Cathy,
I do not like the trimmed bushes either. I think they do look silly too. You are nice to say these look like exotic mushrooms.
LOL! "People of the world relax!"

I took that walk with you Sherry. I like you would go where the wild flowers are. We think alike.

Marie said...

Beautiful flowers!

I just love spring too.
Those cemetary forsythia are trimmed odd.

Beauty can be found in unexpected placed.
Is good to know you can find it all around you!

Dear Cheryl,
I love to walk and I think it is very good for me! There are three walking paths I take. When I walk in the cemetery I almost always walk down where the wildflowers grow. There is a nice flat sunny spot and I enjoy seeing the different wildflowers in season.
I live in the city and pretend I am out in the country near the meadows and the streams.
Thank you for walking with me.

Dear MArie,
thank you. I tried to post a neighborhood walk I took but Blogger would not let me! So silly.
Maybe today I can walk and post.

Dear Becky,
Spring is beautiful!
I like a natural branching bush. LOL
I belong in the wilds.. city living is too trimmed and tidy!

Q said...

Dear Mel,
I think my job is to find beauty whereever I am. Sometimes it is difficult. If I look deep enough and long enough I always find it.
Thank you for your kindness.
Thank you for walking with.

Thank you for visiting the newt videos, Sherry. If you would like to see some amazing photographs of newts you can now view them on my post :)

Dear Wildlife Gardener,
Oh my goodness. You were able to get some wonderful photos. I know so little about pond life. My little garden ponds are more like big bird baths.
Thank you for letting me know about your newts. They are very cool. I love learning thank you for teaching!
