Farm flora

I’ve been having fun watching all of the flowers coming up around the farm this spring. It’s been a process of discovery as I figure out what that green shoot is and what’s planted over there.

Snowdrops

I believe this is Solomon’s Seal

Orange lilies

Snow on the mountain

Snow on the mountain. This plant grows like crazy at my in-laws’ place, but I couldn’t get it to take at our old house. It turns out that the farm is home to a very robust crop.

Red Japanese maple and green ferns

Lily of the valley

Beautiful lily of the valley. Another plant that I couldn’t get to grow at the old house.

Forget me nots

Forget me nots (and maybe a some strawberry blossoms at the top)

Purple iris

Dandelions

Our most common flower at the farm: the dandelion

What’s your favourite spring flower? Anyone else have a successful dandelion plantation?

  1. Wow! Great Photos…they are beautiful…I want to print the Iris and Forget me nots and put them in frames! I can’t wait to come to the farm next to see these in person!

  2. I’m so jealous! Our spring is way over and dry, desert-y, hot summer is here. And the deer found my day lilies so my splash of orange has been digested. 😦 I won’t even mention what they did to my roses – there may be children reading this. πŸ˜‰
