Spring Beauties

Spring is my favorite time of year because of all the native wild flowers that are blooming. I love to walk in the woods and see how many I can identify. There are many online sites that sell wildflowers if you would like to try growing a few. It seems there are many different varieties available for spring shade gardens; not so for summer and fall sun gardens. The most well known for summer and fall is Black-eyed Susan and butterfly weed. Here are some of my spring-blooming flowers, shrubs, and trees.
