Yellow

Today it is all about the yellow.

Yellow Lady Slippers in the refuge

The Yellow Lady Slippers are a full two weeks late. They are just beginning to bloom in the Tamarac Wildlife Refuge.  They are small this year, in another week or so they should be in full bloom. 

Double Dandys

The Dandy’s are going wild in the rain that we have had. The ponds are filling up and the trees are soaking up the rain.  The mud puddles are ringed with yellow pollen and my car is covered in pollen.  The next time it rains all the pollen should be gone…well the majority of it anyway:)

  3. Love the Lady Slippers. They seem so delicate. Dandelions are in full bloom here also, so are the pollen counts. My nose is going nuts. Have a nice day.

  13. Hi Connie,
    Muffy sent me to your blog. I'm an RV volunteer at Tamarac NWR this summer, and also had pics of the lady's sliippers on my blog post last night. I was wondering if you could identify the first picture of blooms in that post?

    Muffy told me you were her go to person for wildflowers. :)

  15. Lovely yellows! Seems a lot of things are running a little behind schedule this year. I can't believe I've still been hearing and seeing geese traveling north the last couple weeks. They should be escorting babies around like yours are. Hope it's been warmer at work! ;)
