May 2017: Blossoms

Our recent precipitation has been snow flurries and freezing rain but we hold to the promise that even these April showers will bring May flowers.

July 2015

Fireworks are part of of every Canada Day (July 1) celebration. I love that some flowers look like fireworks when in full bloom. Here are some to enjoy this month.

These wildflowers are blue-bead lilies named for the blue fruit that remains on the stem after the blossoms have died off. They are not poisonous but also not very tasty.

My apologies to those of you who were looking for the calendar before it was up. I’ve been delightfully distracted by the first time gathering of all 6 of our grandkids. 🙂

happy growing family

first flowers

Leatherleaf appears as first forest flowers of spring in my backyard! These delicate little blossoms are very similar in shape to blueberry blossoms. They differ in their arrangement on the branch, however, strung like patio lights.
