Tulips are blooming in our neighborhood. On sunny days they glow with sunlight! I think they would look like paper lanterns if they were to glow at night.
Maybe they do glow at night somewhere! Fireflies produce light through a chemical reaction called bioluminescence. Scientists used this as inspiration to create glowsticks. Yay for fireflies and glowsticks!
I noticed this flower a few years ago in the woods by my parents house. Have you ever seen one before? I look out for it now and have’t seen it in a couple years. I found out that it’s a type of orchid, native to the East Coast and Midwest US, and are actually pretty rare. Then just yesterday I saw a bunch of them in a neighbor’s yard! I went back today and the woman happened to be outside. She told me her mother transplanted them years ago and they migrated to one area of her yard near a big stump. They are so strange looking, don’t you think?!
My backyard has such a nice sweet smell lately! So many plants, bushes, and trees are flowering. This is the smell of spring that fragrance companies are going for but can never quite achieve.
I’m enjoying it and it seems to be driving the pollinators wild! The bees, butterflies and other buzzy things are very busy back there. I just try and stay out of the way of the bees. Bee stings really hurt!
