lyre leaf sage, there's a colony on the edge of the road in sandy soil that appears every year.

Great photos, rockerBOO. I especially like the composition and look of your Wild Bleeding Heart (Dicentra eximia).

I don't think we've "met", but I see from your profile that you joined last June. Glad you are here--welcome aboard (if it isn't too late to say that).

pawprint they are nearly orange!

I would love some help with an ID of this pretty flower that grows in my backyard every year, I like them because I don't have to mow the grass because of beauties like these. The leaves are wide and rounded but they often grow within a clump of grass, somewhat dry and gravely area, but shaded.What's Blooming Now 2013-100_1666.jpg

I don't know what they are but they are pretty, nicer because you don't have to mow the grass!

Here's what's blooming here today. Blackberries (no photo), baptisia, cinquefoil (not open much because it's overcast), butterweed, tiarella, Virginia sweetspire.

Blackberries are finishing up as is the baptisia. The foxglove penstemon and calico penstemon have started. Persimmon is blooming with little white bells that look like Carolina silverbell. This one looks to be a male.

pawprint flypoison, Amianthium muscaetoxicum

Highly poisonous plant, but still pretty cluster of blooms. The bloom belongs to the grass like leaves at the base.What's Blooming Now 2013-staggerweed.jpg

Here is another pix of the grass like leaves and the blooming just beginning, about 2 weeks ago.What's Blooming Now 2013-staggerweed-blooming.jpg

This is as it first appears in early April.What's Blooming Now 2013-stagger-weed.jpg
