As most of you know I love Native Wildflowers. Last year I wrote about a number of them and what bloomed when. This year I am trying to fill in the blanks, either the flowers I missed or the ones that did not photograph well.
This is the Downey Yellow Violet or Viola pubescens. A tiny little cheerful yellow bloom. The purple veins are runways for insects, showing them the way to the pollen and nectar.
I also like to take photos of companion plants. I was disappointed that we did not get north of here or south of here to see the Trilliums in bloom. They bloom Memorial Day Weekend. Then late one afternoon I found some in a spot about a 7 miles south of our house..I was pleased.
The Trillium is on the left and the Large-Flowered Bellwort is on the right. Both are beautiful little plants that compliment each other..they are woodland friends.
Far Guys Trillium made it through another winter. They only bloom for a few days. She is stunning.
Far Guy planted out some tomato seedlings that he grew in his greenhouse/workshop. He also planted some onions and apparently he ran onto some watermelon seed so he planted that in his small garden too.
It has finally warmed up, today we are headed for highs in the eighties..we bypassed the seventies completely. With our non spring it seems we have been thrust right into the steamy bosom of summer:(
