A Day In Mid Spring

Fothergilla up close.





















Trillium luteum showing hints of yellow.





















Transplanted trilliums coming back for a second time.





















Hosta with a big cracked pot.





















Aralia cordata 'Sun King' not wanting to get big quickly.





















The many colors of bluebells.





















Variegated Solomon's Seal.





















White Bluebells.





















The big pink azalea in full bloom.





















A little deep pink azalea with company in full bloom.





















Up close with the big pink azalea on a day in mid spring.

The mountain wildflowers that you photograph and describe helps me. I just discovered that I have a Showy Orchis in my woodland! :-)

It is stunning right now Sallysmom.

That's great Dana. So many of the forested properties in these parts would have a huge array of native wild flowers if they were maintained with a different mind set. People need to get rid of the idea of lawn. Simply clearing out the underbrush and an annual weed whack after the first hard frost would let so many of the natives grow. Of course editing helps.
