I don’t recognize that last one but that’s no surprise sine our plants often look very different. Your spring beauty for instance, looks very different than ours. But all the same it’s still great to see them!
They’re all lovely — and I wholly understand your impulse to post them together. The more I look around, the more I find, and many of them I swear I’ve never seen before. There are so many tiny ones, as you say. Stopping to examine even a small area can reveal an unbelievable number of species. Add in the grasses, and it starts to feel overwhelming. Trying to ID grasses is a path straight into really confusing territory!
Just gorgeous. I can see why you would get carried away when the Spring flowers come out.
Love the Oregon Grape (especially as my shots of the same species are rather feeble in comparison – I very nearly posted one tonight and am now glad I didn’t).
I wonder what the bottom flower will be (when it opens).
Thanks Vicki. This time of year I’m like a little kid on an Easter egg hunt with all the pretty patches of color showing up.
I think those are the flowers in that last photo. I’ve seen several species that bloom that way, strange as it is.
