Nature Walks – Things Are Blooming

It was yet another beautiful, sunny day around the lakes. Everyday, more and more buds are beginning to open up. Everything is blooming nicely and the colors are starting to really come out too.

The daffodils and hyacinths are looking bright and colorful.

So are the muscari armeniacum.

Even the trees and bushes are starting to show their true colors.

My lemon verbena is starting to grow too. This is what it looks like now. Give it a few weeks and my whole backyard will be over run with it. I love it though. It always smells so good. And when it is in full bloom, I use it as much as I can in as many recipes as I can too. I love the fresh lemon flavor it adds to every dish I use it for.
