Thanks, Wanda! It's a bit difficult to photograph something this small, but I love them too!

Thanks, Mary and Mindi! Mindi, we had creeping Charlie with its lovely blue flowers when I lived in MN, but not here (just as well; it's considered a weed pest). Every area has something different.

Well, in some ways, Shirley... I've seen forsythia bushes in bloom in other people's yards but mine are just barely budding out. I think it depends on the variety and on the exposure. Plants on a southern slope warm up faster than others. Glad you like this picture; thanks for commenting!

Thank you, Katy; I went out of my way to check out a patch I had photographed last spring. I have sometimes seen these blanketing a hillside so thickly that they turn it blue as if someone had overturned buckets of paint. One of my favorite wildflowers, and I hope I can get some established in my rock garden some time.

Oh, hello, Elaine; you sneaked in while I was typing! Thanks also for your comment!
