Wildflower Wednesday-I mean, Friday

To celebrate the return of my Internet connection, I am uploading some wildflower photos supplied by a friend who lives out in the rural area of Broome County, NY, the county I live in.  These are from earlier this spring.  Enjoy!

This first photo is of a painted trillium.  What a pretty splash of pink color in the center.

This next is a trailing arbutus.  Again, I could wish for blogosmell, to bring you the fragrance of this wildflower.

Finally, a viburnum.  There are a lot of varieties used in landscaping, but this is also a native plant.


I enjoy these photos, and hope to feature this friend's photos again in the near future.

Would you like to see wildflower pictures once a week? (as long as we have a wildflower season in upstate NY, that is?  We don't have flowers here year round.)  Wednesday might be a natural for this feature.  If you want to see more, please feel free to leave a comment.

  1. Yes, Wildflower Wednesdays, please! It's nice to know that these flowers exist in real life, and not just in books. A whole different set of blooms in the South...
