Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Nostalgic Projection of Spring Soon to Come – Part 2

The grass is starting to grow. The grey cover of our yard is showing a hint of green. The raised garden beds have been prepared for the spring season. Soon it will be the time for planting the cold weather crops. Our strawberries are getting busy developing their buds and promise a bountiful harvest. This is the second and final instalment of my excursion into my archives. Today I am focusing on daisies, violets, a tiger lily, and an unknown beauty. Enjoy.

  1. Schöne Blüher sind das! Und eure Erdbeeren haben Knospen? My strawberries are showing one measly green leaf each, that’s it … 😀
    The unknown beauty could be a “mimulus guttatus”, if the flowers are really small. As your photo is of such a good quality, I used my plant identification App (free of charge called “LeafSnap”), which gave me several results, only this one was the one that resembled most.

    1. Vielen Dank, liebe Birgit für deine Bemühungen! Ich habe bei Wikipdia mimulus guttatus gefunden und die Blume sieht der von meinem Blog verblüffend ähnlich. Einfach toll wie die App LeafSnap die Blumen identifizieren kann!

      1. I am looking forward to it. We have had snow storms with travel warnings the past 3 weeks. It is snowing now. It will melt by the end of April or early May. Happy Resurrection Day!

  2. Hallo Peter, das sind ja wieder traumhafte Blumen- und Blütenfotos. Bei euch scheint das Frühjahr schon weiter zu sein und Gänseblümchen, Veilchen, Tigerlilie stehen in voller Blüte. Liebe Grüße nach Kanada. Wolfgang
