Show & Tell Friday for May 15

For show & tell today, I thought I would share a few photos of spring in bloom (at last!) around our yard. Most of these are wildflowers.

This clintonia, also called blue bead lily for the blue berries that will come later, grows in one particular spot in our yard.

These wood anemones are in the wildflower garden.

These teensy white violets are all over what passes for our lawn.

Another group of white violets, these with a few dandelions sprinkled in.

Some purple violets in the back yard.

More purple violets with some dandelions mixed in.

Apple blossoms on our wild tree.

And my favorite, painted trilliums at the edge of the woods.

That is my simple Show & Tell for today. To see what others have shared for Show & Tell Friday, head on over to There is No Place Like Home.

Happy Show & Tell Friday!

  2. Beautiful. I remember the trillioms from Wisconsin...very pretty!

  3. Lovely flowers and bushes.

  4. Delightful...I enjoyed seeing the flowering plants in your garden. My grass was covered with white and purple violets before it rained ant the grass was cut. I gathered many of the tiny flowers and put them in tulip-shaped votive candle holders. My mom and I enjoyed looking at them inside.

  5. These are great photo's. What beautiful plants, thanks for sharing.

  6. That is my favorite kind of lawn.

  7. The garden is looking so pretty!
