A few spring wildflowers

The weather continues to be dreary and drizzly here, but the wildflowers in the garden and all around our yard make some bright spots of spring color. Here are a few of them:

Wild cherry blossoms (now all off the branches due to rain)

Apple blossoms

Wood anenomes in the wildflower garden

Clintonia (clearing out some of our woods made way for several new large patches of these)

Violets ~ we have way more of these that I can possibly show you; this is just one little clump

Painted trilliums

And violets and dandelions together (as they are on our back lawn) make a particularly bright contrast.

God is so good to give us these lovely wildflowers year after year!


  1. Lovely pictures! I remember growing up in Michigan and having all these wonderful flowers. I love the violets.

    Thanks for sharing. :)

    Blessings, Patty

  2. Patty,

    Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment! It is so good to see you here...

    I did get your nice newsy email and will reply as soon as I can. Life has been busy with finishing up the summer devotional book as usual. I took it to the print shop today!

    God bless!
