More Signs The Season Is Moving Forward....

Here are some images from around the yard...Spring is still moving (just not transitioning as fast as we'd like it to):

This is the section of the "jungle" in the backyard. There is a little white pine we transplanted from Idaho and lots of wildflowers. Is there anything sweeter than a field of forget-me-nots?

The poppies are about to burst!

The Alpine Tulips are flowering and turning to seed--if anyone reading this would like some seed this summer, just email me and i can send you some.

The delphenium/floxglove-esque looking plant in the photo below is intriguing. I haven't planted anything that looked like that here next to this lavender. So i am wondering if it is the wild foxglove native to our state? It's stems are very hairy...but the leaves don't really look like a foxglove's to me.

The alpine strawberries have awakened and are flowering again. Yippee! These little gems are our favourites in the summertime! Yummy!

And the sweet peas i planted last month have sprouted and are growing right along.
