Walking in May

We've had the perfect mix of rain and sun the past few weeks.
The world is lush and green.
Let's take a walk.

In this kind of weather, plants go from bud...

...to bloom almost over night.

I was amused to find some 'escaped' Bachelor Buttons doing well.

I have no idea what this low-growing plant is, but it is both delicate and intricate.

More and more Camas are in bloom.

Here's a small native Geranium.

Large False Solomon's Seal.

A thin stalk with fairy flowers.

Swamp Violet

Sweet Woodriff

Cow's Parsley

Our fields of Iris Tenax are carpets of purple and lavender.


The colors are vary from clump to clump. 

Bluebells. 

And Larkspur - one of my favorites!
