Weekly Photo Challenge–Spring; Today’s Flowers

Prompt for Weekly Photo Challenge: Spring

Here are signs of spring in Virginia:

Goldfinches sport their bright colors.
Irises are in bloom…
…and so is the catmint.

I hope this brightens your day.

God saw all that He made, and behold, it was very good. 



Blooming This Week

Walker’s Low Catmint

I love catmint! What’s not to love about a plant that blooms spring to fall? It loves the heat, attracts butterflies and hummingbirds, and is deer resistant. Not that we have deer, but that’s good to know if there are deer in your area.

Gaura–Whirling Butterflies

This delightful plant reseeded itself, so now there are two. I like that! In the lower left corner is the high mallow. Somehow, I lost its picture.  


This yarrow keeps spreading out. It looked like a patch of sunshine on this heavily-overcast day.
