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.
I believe this is Solomon’s Seal
Orange lilies behind the house
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 bright green ferns at the corner of the house
Beautiful lily of the valley. Another plant that I couldn’t get to grow at the old house.
Forget me nots (and maybe a some strawberry blossoms at the top)
Purple iris at the south side of the house
Our most common flower at the farm: the dandelion
What’s your favourite spring flower? Anyone else have a successful dandelion plantation?
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!
Thanks, Catherine! I’m still not entirely confident in my photography, so I appreciate your praise.
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. 😉
My sympathies, Michele, to you and your day lilies and roses. So far, our deer have stayed in the back fields well away from the house, and our flowers have stayed intact.
They are beautiful photos. It’s so much fun to discover these kinds of surprises at a new home (as opposed to the kind you find, say, behind the wall…!)
This comment made me laugh. This is absolutely true. We’ve had our share of the not so nice surprises behind the walls. Flowers popping up in the garden are much, much better.
