|Violets--My grandmother and I used to pick violets, then have "fights" where|
each person takes a flower and you hook it on your opponents bloom, then yank and
see which violet can pop the bloom off of the other.
|Snakeberry bloom. It always makes me think of wild strawberries, but|
I have not seen a wild strawberry in YEARS!
|The much beleaguered dandelion. I think they are so sunny and cheerful!|
|The soil at my house is perfect for azaleas.|
|Azaleas grow like weeds at my house.|
|Coreopsis. This plant produces one of the most beautiful natural dyes!|
|My catnip did not even die back this past winter.|
That made my cats very happy all winter long!
|This rosemary plant is about 10 years old. |
In many areas of the Valley
they die come winter and must be replanted each spring.
|Chinese Cherry--we have two of these gorgeous trees in our yard.|
With all of this blooming, it should be no surprise that my throat is sore and almost swollen shut!
