Just some random photos of what's blooming now.
Blue flax, Linum lewisii. I love the delicate blue flowers on slender stalks.
Buttercup, Ranunculus repens 'Pleniflorus'? Creeping buttercup
Bud of the oriental poppy, Papaver orientale. Though technically not blooming to be added to this post, I took a picture of this bud thinking it would make an interesting picture. I was amazed to see aphids both adult and young on the bud when I downloaded and enlarged it. Click photo to enlarge.
Amaryllis "Papillio". It is not really an Amaryllis but a Hippeastrum but usually sold as Amaryllis. We dryed out the bulbs last fall and overwintered them in our unheated garage then planted them in pots when the frost date permitted. This is the first year it has produced so many flowers of very good size.
Golden Chain tree, Laburnum x watereri not to be confused with Golden Rain tree. The tree reminds us of a yellow flowered wisteria when in bloom with the same pendant cascade of flowers.
And, the seed pod of a Pasque flower, Pulsatilla vulgaris which is in the same family as the buttercup, Ranunculus and closely related to the anemones and were once included in that genus. I thought the seed pod was just as interesting as the flower itself.
