"Things You Wouldn't Know If We Didn't Blog Intermittently."

as bluebells bloom, in Halle, Belgium, on Thursday April 19, 2018.
Bluebells (Hyacinthoides non-scripta) are particularly associated with
ancient woodland where it may dominate the understorey to produce
carpets of violet–blue flowers. The forest is a crowd favorite thanks to
the beautiful purple flowers. (AP Photo/Geert Vanden Wijngaert) (via)
4/20 has a different meaning for me than for many of my generation. That is the approximate date on which the Blue-Eyed Marys (Collinsia verna) would be in peak bloom in the Raven Run nature sanctuary outside Lexington, Kentucky. I have some memorable photos, but they are all on Kodachrome slides, and I need to find a way to digitize my old photo memories for the blog.
