PoliGlow on Hold & More Gorgeous Wildflowers

Crabapple blossoms

I had planned to PolyGlow the Casita this week.  The days are around 80 degrees, so it’s perfect weather for it.  But everything is coated with yellow pollen,  so I decided that  it would be wiser to wait until the worst of the tree pollen season is past.

While I was out, I found more gorgeous flowers to photograph.  Spring is such a glorious time of the year!

Tiny little chickweed flowers

Onion flowers in their husk right before bursting free. Onion flowers fascinate me!

Exquisite tiny "weed" flower

Stars of Bethlehem, I think!

 

Spring — Already!

Tiny little henbit flowers

I can hardly wrap my mind around the fact that spring is here again.  Or that I have lived here for so many years and photographed the same little flowers– or their parents — for so many springs.  Yet, their welcome little faces are always new to me.

White daffodils

Everything is very early this year due to our non-winter.  The daffodils are almost finished.  Only 3 blooms remain.

Hope you enjoy the familiar nature show.  🙂

Perennial vinca comes back every year around our front porch.

Sweet little bluets carpet the open woods

These tasteless little Indian strawberries have almost completely crowded out the delicious wild strawberries.

Not sure what these are. I think they are crabapple flower buds.

New fig leaves

New rosebud

Last year's green onions are blooming

 

A bumper crop of dandelions is on the way!

The white plum flowers have fallen. Now baby plums are on the way.
