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.

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



I enjoy hearing from fellow nature lovers and gardeners. Let me know your thoughts.
