It’s been a while since I posted, have I mentioned spring is a busy time?  The local Farmer’s Market opened in Boonville a few weeks ago, and while the cold spring has put a damper on my early garden, I have still been bringing my jams and body care products, which have all been well received by customers who are just as anxious for an excuse to get out into the spring sunshine as me!  My favorite thing to do this time of year is go for a wildflower walk, here is some of what I’ve found lately:

Dutchman’s Breeches, adorable!

Spring Beauty, I’m lovin’ those pink stamens

Erythronium albidum

 

The final flower in the series, white fawn lily, was a new find for me last year.  Someone contacted me after seeing a photo I took on Flick’r, asking me to send them a specimen as they are doing research on the species.  I haven’t found enough of them to feel comfortable digging one up however, so I think I will leave them in peace.  

Here’s hoping you are all out making the most of and enjoying the spring!
