Just about forgot

Some time ago I posted a photo or two of Alpine Springbeauties, one of the very early wildflowers in this area. Not long after, I discovered another variety, the Siberian Springbeauty and forgot to post a photo of them. This was the first year in which I’ve seen them and thought they were really pretty.
