Spring is springing. My land neighbors the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. The wildflowers here are some of the most abundant in the world. We are well known for them. I am so fortunate to have many many natives growing here in the woods.
Here are some violets and wild hyacinth or Grape Hyacinth
And a few cultivated varieties too!! Lots of color is in the garden beds here @ MoonMaid
Trilliums are one of my great joys. Here is a baby just unfolding. I await the lovely yellow blossoms. There are also other rare species here. Surely trilliums, which are endangered, will deserve there own blog post.
And the lovely dainty white ladies of the garden beds. Snowdrop, bells and narcissus, just in time for Equinox and Easter.
And the yellows of Dandelions, one of my FAVORITE flowers. And a lovely Forsythia, which my brother calls ForCynthia.
And that is just the beginning of what's to come in the garden. Coming soon - a YouTube channel with videos both of the gardens and "DIY's" for infusions, creams and much more.
Until next time - Cynthia @ MoonMaid Botanicals
