Flowers on Friday

Lots of blooming going on out there. Here’s the hidden delights of a mayapple.
Common stork’s-bill (maybe).
One of the chokeberries (Aronia), methinks.
Geranium genus.
Virginia bluebells
Polygonatum
Packera.
Golden alexanders and friend.
Star-of-Bethlehem and nymph Small Milkweed Bug.
Wisteria and carpenter bee.
Good gravy, azalea under oak.

The enormous flowers of big leaf magnolia smell… extraordinarily good. (This is evidently a quick way of telling Magnolia macrophylla from the similar large-flowered Magnolia tripetala, which stinks.) I smelled a very refreshing citrus, a nostalgic cola, and summertime. And I smelled it yards and yards away.

    Love that you name them. I try to name mine too — not always successfully.
