I'm not really sure what these are . . . I think my brother-in-law calls them sundrops. Appropriate, yes?
Even a garish little primrose appears shamelessly amid the detritus of last autumn.
The sweet woodruff is in full bloom right now, and the fern unfurled just last week . . .
Trillium are protected in Michigan, so when I see this flower in our backyard I feel like we've been entrusted with something remarkable.
This lovely little plant with the speckled leaves is a pulmonaria variety called "Mrs. Moon." The blooms are tiny as can be, but aren't they cute?
Back to baking now. (On the menu tomorrow . . . fresh strawberry scones.)
