The eastern red bud tree on my block is in bloom. More about the purplish red blossoms of Eastern red bud trees are in this post.
I’ve been trying to capture a robin with my camera for the last month. I had a work meeting at Rutgers on the engineering campus last week, and amid all the concrete, grass and brick I found this robin.
This big yellow tulip has an insect inside. Sort of like two for one for Nature Notes.
Today my daughter and I found a plant nursery called Baker’s in Monroe Township, New Jersey. The people were nice, the prices were reasonable, and the plants were in good condition. We bought some pink begonias, some colorful snapdragons, a plant with variegated pink leaves that my daughter picked out, a pot of bright pink gerber daisies (again, her choice) that I hope will survive the summer on our porch, and one parsley plant that will probably get eaten by some animal that is not human. Have you planted anything in your garden this spring?
