Distractions from gardening today

Hello everyone , I have seen enough things online about the tornado to blow my mind. Went out to pull some weeds to release some stress.
I decided to blog about something that makes me happy , Spring.
This is some of the distractions I have had today.  .

  1. Oh, Terica, thank you so much for letting me see Spring! Some day I will live in the south again. The leaf that you didn't know the name of is a Mayapple, also known as Mandrake. We had tons of them on the hill behind our house in Missouri. All parts of the plant are toxic except for the ripe fruit. We never got the fruits...deer or some critter always got to them before we did. Thanks again for the 'trip'!

  2. Thanks ladybug , I will update it ASAP. Peace

  3. absolutely beauty-full!:-)...
