Spring is now in full flush mode, which is to say, almost over. The early blossoms have come and gone and the full boom, alas too short, has parted. It all happens so quickly! One day you have a fiery quince bush, the next day a green blob…one day a beautiful mock tulip, the next day a bunch of petals quickly becoming mulch on your lawn.
The first pictures were grabbed en route home to Putnam from my job in Rhode Island in a small town called Killingly on Route 101. Starting with the lilacs, the majority of the images were taken in our home garden; and finally, starting with the holly berries, the rest were taken at a local greenhouse, which, to be frank, at this point and based on my wife’s patronage, probably owes us stock options. (That was a joke.)
Before viewing the photographs, I would also like to invite you to visit the poetry blog, the Book of Pain. Thank you for dropping by the Book of Bokeh.
