Oconee Bells

Going up in elevation pushes back the spring time clock.

Oconee Bells (Shortia galacifolia) were flowering in mid-March in the Piedmont, but in the Botanical Gardens of Asheville, these plants were in full flower on Easter Sunday.

Lovely.

    I was just out looking at the spring wildflowers, here in Northern California.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
