Little Signs of Spring #2

Maple Seeds

(I called them “whirly birds” when I was small.  Who can resist throwing handfuls of them into the air to watch them twirl their way to the ground?)  Country Dew has a great post on them here.  She called them “dibbas.”

    Beautiful lighting in this shot. I’ve no first hand experience with them, so I get to pick my favorite term for them, no? :-)

    What a great shot! Thanks for the mention.

    Are they really that red? I saw them take off like UFO helicopters maybe for the first time yesterday. Made me laugh out loud! And then wonder, where have I been all my life?

    Beautiful. We called them, similarly, “twirlies”.
