Happy Easter!

Yesterday I took a loooooong training walk in the Metropark, and I was delighted to see that the wildflowers are starting to make an appearance. Acres and acres of forest were carpeted in the most vibrant green, with tons of little yellow daisy-like flowers on top. And then I'd walk around a bend in the trail, and the forest floor was completely barren - no leaves, no flowers, no nothing. Keep walking, and I'd get to large clumps of lily-of-the-valley plants, which weren't blooming yet but had lots of foliage. Some places had daffodils peeking out from behind trees, and there were even a few violets along the edges of the trail.

I believe it's safe to say that spring has officially sprung in Cleveland.
