Lots of fun stuff in the garden! Our 1000s of trout lilies are a creamy yellow, the leaves look the same. Love your blue bonnets.

Ah, spring--my favorite time of year! So many lovely blooms in your garden, Shady--I love all the wildflowers and woodland plants. Your flowering tree is beautiful; what a lovely way to remember your sister.

What a great combination of wild and domestic spring flowers. I love it! We also have several "commemerative" tree plantings in our yard....

Hi Randy, I've never seen the yellowish trout lilies "in person." However, I did see a yellow violet in the woods today... I didn't dig it, though!! (tempted) lol

Thanks, Darla.

I need to visit your site, Rose! I KNOW you've been gardening and working a lot outdoors lately!

Hi troutbirder. How's your weather these days?? It's been a LOT colder lately...

Thanks, Casa! :-)
