The "Black" Tulips are always the last ones to bloom, but they are beautiful. The pedals of the bloom looks like velvet.

The Wild Geranium are in the peak bloom right now. These are the most unusual plants in that if Japanese Beetles eat the leaves it kills the beetle. The plants propagate by throwing their seeds up to 10' away from the mother plant, so young plants show up just about anywhere.

I just got a plant from my sil and put it in last fall.  It's one of my favorites and it's doing well in it's new spot.  I hope the whole area will fill up with them.

We saw these along our local rail trail. I'd love to have some in my yard. I'll have to check the local native nursery.  I had one at my last house for a little while.

Thanks for sharing! I enjoyed that.  Do salvia like sun or shade?

They love full sun, such as the south facing side of the house. If they are in partial shade, they will not bloom nearly as much.  The pollinators cannot resist the sweet smell of the Salvia flowers, and they bloom all summer long.

The blue Wild Geranium has gotten huge this year, never knew they ever got that big. I love having the Wild Geranium around as they are toxic to the Japanese Beetle. Pollinators, on the other hand, love the flowers.

I love the spring flowers to bring in the pollinators, but some of them have another benefit besides feeding the pollinators.

The High Bush Cranberry bushes are great for the pollinators this time of the year, and they fill the yard with their sweet fragrant smell. After the bloom, they set berries which turn bright red in the fall and are treasured by the song birds for their fall & winter food.Spring Flowers Cranbe10


The Comfrey plants have beautiful flowers from spring until well into fall, and are loved by the bees. But, the leaves are cut off the plants multiple times throughout the summer to mulch plants or provide a nitrogen-rich addition to the compost.Spring Flowers Comfre11
