April Flowers

Meanwhile, back in the yard ...

Common Blue Violet

The state flower of New Jersey. Also of Illinois, Rhode Island, and Wisconsin. (I wonder which had it first?*)

Lance-leaf Violet

Both violets appeared in our yard without human intervention. That cannot be said for all of the flowers in this post.

Woodland Poppy

I think this is Greater Celandine, a non-native species.

Virginia Bluebells

We have some of the pink ones in the yard as well.

Jacob's Ladder


Speedwell


Wild Geranium


Bleeding Heart


Foamflower


Azalea


Pussytoes


Phlox


Golden Ragwort


Crab Apple


Highbush Blueberry


Fothergilla


Tulip

These definitely required human intervention.

Columbine

I hope spring is happening in your yard too.
