Big Trees Forest Preserve in the spring ♥ (April 3rd)

Photos from when my partner and I went to the Big Trees Forest Preserve in early April -- which I just got 'round to editing. Planning on visiting again when the weather cools a little: it's supposed to be in the 90s (and feel like the 100s) until Tuesday. :-p





spring colors

---


so much spring green!

---


it looks so empty and open

---


but I love all the blossoms ♥

---


I love this view

---


the clearing

---


pixies live under these strange plants and decorate their bodies with wood violet pollen :D

---


Efaniburl with no leaves!

---


I did not intensify this color -- it was actually this bright!

---


the moss was SO VIBRANT

---


the streams were full

---


ebullient waters :D

---


sun-spangled beginnings

---


this was the most accurate color shot of the day

---


I love that swirling trunk, so serpentine

---


Wahtaveoir wears ferny panties *snicker*

---


stretching up and up...

---


my friend pine ♥

---


I love how these two stand back-to-back

---


I love the lines here! these three remind me of three witches dancing

---


this tree got an early start on greening!

---


making good use of the sun before the canopy comes in!

---


sunset turns green to gold

---


leaves a-flutter with light

---


so vibrant!

---


so perfect and tiny

---


an interesting plant...

---


...with blossoms that reminded me so much of Anika! (esp. the tangerine anthers)

---


dogwoods!

---


I love the shape of these buds!

---


♥ tree blossoms -- what kind?

---


I love the translucency of the petals!

---


the colors of this captured me

---


living fire ♥

---


happy
