Passing a nearby cemetery this week, I noticed that a crypt door was open.

Call it morbid curiosity, but I had to stop and look inside.

And take a picture, of course:

It was, predictably, empty.  But it was none the less creepy, and I spent very little time with my back to that open door, until I got distracted by these pussy toes:

I didn’t have Elliot mounted, but my Sweet Sixteen did admirably for such a windy afternoon.

Thanks, SS!

Some little things which had the poor judgment to cross my path today.

Common club moss, here topped with its Spring fertile hats and drenched with morning dew:

Pussy Toes, along the road:

That’s a quarter inch of pristine complexity.

A clump of violets, the local wild kind:

Early saxifrage, clinging to a roadcut on the drive home.

And a little red Columbine, considering whether or not to unfurl its crown at this early date:

Things have popped early this year, and risk being taken down by a cold snap.

Meanwhile, I’m happy to share them with you.
