An Ozark Spring starts with plentiful rains followed by waves of colors – vivid and saturated like a box of crayons. Forsythias, red buds, dogwoods, violets, daffodils….on and on from late March through August.
Like much of the south, the Ozarks are under pretty extreme drought conditions this year. The season started well and just stopped in mid May. Except for some roadside chicory, the color is all but gone. The field grasses are yellow, the earth is crunchy. I miss my crayons….
I know that the drought, like all things, will pass. The colors will be back.
Gorgeous Photos – thanks for sharing:)
Just look at all those colors. Stunning. 🙂
Thank you – I imagine that you have amazing colors in the Philippines.
