  2. The trillium's my favourite. It's a bit different than the trilliums we see here.

    1. I wonder how yours are different.
      The flowers do turn a pink-ish color as they age.

  8. I cannot believe you were able to capture these images of such tiny growing things. I had no idea the kinnickkinnick flowers looked like that. I must pay more attention this spring when I see it blooming.

    1. thank you Barb, they are not easy to capture with a hand held camera. the kinnickkinnick are so low to the ground that it is hard to notice the details without getting low to the ground ;-).

  10. All beautiful photos, Tammie. I know where the "mountain lover" grows near here but I haven't been there yet this year. I'm sure that a lot of folks miss seeing it.

  22. Hello dear Tammy,
    Oh yes, the first spring flowers are a delight for the eye but also for the soul.
    The Trillium is absolutely magnificent and seems to fit perfectly into the Fibonacci sequence!!
    Thanks for your sweet visits :)
    Warm hugs, enjoy your week!
