Take a moment to catch your breath...
here comes June.


  1. You now so many names! I just call them all oooh, pretty. :-)

  2. I was just thinking the other day that I've forgotten many more plant names than I remember - I think it's harder to retain them if you aren't using them in day-to-day life. But I'll continue to make an effort to include them here, for anyone interested - and to try to keep my brain working ;).


  3. Beautiful photos
    Spireah is one of my favorites. I prefer the h spelling.

    1. I've never seen it that way, but you are very welcome to spell it that way here :)

  4. I've never seen a Mayapple bloom - how beautiful!! It almost looks as though it's made of wax. The spirea are in bloom here and look absolutely spectacular. Just have to hope no rainstorms go through and destroy the blooms!

    1. You are right about the mayapple blossoms! I think the waxy look is partly because of the diffused light - you have to sort of stand on your head to see the flowers, as they are well concealed by those massive leafy umbrellas :)

  5. I love seeing your May flowers. Looks like mostly wildflowers. Such a pretty time of year.

    1. It is indeed a lovely time of year - something new every day, or even every morning and again every evening!
