Wildflower Garden 2014

Easter 2014 (Apr 20)

Took a stroll in my wildflower garden this morning and took some pictures with my iPad. The garden was originally a dry oak woods behind our house. It’s been a work in progress for a dozen years, and portions of it are reaching maturity. I thought I would share some photos from today, as well as some from a couple of weeks ago (trout lilly and bloodroot). There are a few more species still to bloom, but I’ll tack them on the end of this post as an “update”.
