two-toned violets

Psalms 118:24 declares, “This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”  The birds certainly seem to be rejoicing with their melodic spring calls. I want to put a freeze frame on these days when woodland flowers turn walks on our trail into pure magic. The bluebells nodding in the breeze can almost be mistaken for a meandering stream. My amateur “phone” photography does not do these blooming beauties justice. You may need to stop by and take a stroll.
