Here is one...early iris, vinca major, strawberries.
I don't know if anyone lets their kids take May Day flowers to the neighbors anymore. In the early sixties we collected violets, spirea and other small flowers...made paper cones and delivered to the neighborhood...hung on the door knob and knocked and ran. I suppose we weren't as sneaky as we thought. Making the 'basket' and collecting the flowers was fun.


Please add more flower pictures!

A tree on the edge of a gravel pit and an unknown specimen that is advancing along a paved area from a weeping woody plant.
