More Photos

More photos of our spring that is slowly coming into being.

 There are little violet plants peeping out in various places around the property. Most are already losing their blooms.


 Above is Oregon Grape. The yellow is not as intense as in person. I was fighting off a cloud of blood-sucking mosquitoes while trying to take these photos.

 We have hundreds of dandelions.

 What should be yarrow. We shall see when it blooms later on.



I have no clue as to what type of plants these last photos are. I looked for hours and never figured out what they are. The bottom plant is rather interesting.

More tomorrow.


  1. The violets are so pretty.

  2. Watch out for the yarrow, it's as bad as mint IIRC. Was the dandelion salad good? Ours was.

  3. Broomstixs:
    I love voilets too. We have those and wild pansies that march across the drive.

    Jola Gayle:
    I have not had dandelion salad with those growing. I have pretty much let them go where ever they want, as long as they stay out of the garden beds for "regular" food. I do want to get some roots to dry for my herb stuff.
