Nice seeing all the flowers and budding leaves, but sometimes it's the little flashes of colour that really catch our eye.

Nice!

Some of my favorite flowers are tiny. Specks smaller than my finger nail. Kid things I'm weird.

Those look lovely, never seen lichen like that.

Ooh!

I'd heard of slime molds, but never thought to look at pictures/learn to recognize them.

I think I may have seen some of the redberry ones in the first pic set...

Some of these are amazing.

@jessmahler Needs a good eye to find them and a good camera to take phots, I think. Size comparison with a ladybug: ankewehner.tumblr.com/post/646

With you on the small flowers. Love how some of the tiniest ones are so pretty when you get close up to see their detail. 💚
