This and That from the U.P. in Spring.....
Today, I am posting some more U.P. Spring pictures.
Because we spent the last two weeks of April
the first week of May in Florida,
by the time we got back to the U.P.
we had missed a lot of the wildflowers.
It just happened to be a "warmer than usual" spring
in the U.P. this year, which is rare.
But, we did find some wildflowers out in the deep woods:
These are Marsh Marigolds, otherwise known as "cowslips".
These are called: "Spring Beauties":
And, I was afraid I would have missed some of my garden spring flowers, but we did return in time to still catch about a week left of my tulips and other spring plants.
I collect the old watering cans.
The rustier, the better:
I love the character of the old watering cans.
Just think of the nuturing water they supplied the many, many plants over the years...
A tiny yellow "trout lily". I love the delicate shape of their flowers:
Some of my garden tulips:
I have over 500 in my yard now:
This was found deep in the woods...some kind of violet:
Another Trout Lily. They are very tiny, this is a macro of one:
I was so happy
that I hadn't missed all of the U.P. spring wildflowers
or my garden tulips
when we were away.
And now....it's hard to believe they are all gone
and we are getting full-swing into summer!
Bring it on!!!
