Nice azaleas ww. I'm still waiting on R. canescens here. Flame azalea has been blooming for a couple of weeks now.

I'm watching my new American Cranberrybush with baited breath. The new foliage comes out with a reddish tinge and the flowers are just starting to form. Rhus aromatica 'Gro-Low' is producing flowers, I'm an idiot for not planting the straight species as well because I think all the cultivars are females which won't produce much fruit right? (Here I am kicking myself in the *** end for this.) Well they are supposedly monoecious but they are more commonly dioecious so we'll see I guess. The female flowers look like this photo and the male are supposedly brownish.

The coral honeysuckle is doing great, and mama cardinal doesn't like when i come around with the camera. I planted another on the east side of the house, hopefully it will do as well as this one.

I don't know the names of all the pretty flowers growing wild.~~feel free to ID this, would make me happy to know it's name.what's blooming now 2014-100_2139.jpg

what's blooming now 2014-100_2141.jpg This one I know, 'tis wild blueberries blooming! Making me hungry already.

what's blooming now 2014-100_2143.jpg This one has reoccurred from last year, even tho I remember it as 'blue or was it purple last year?...just my luck it is white this year'.

Ohhhhhhh linrose your viburnum trilobum is outstanding.

And turttle your pictures and plants are also quite interesting to see. I probably shouldn't tell on myself, but for more than a year I thought my pawpaw's, were actually red buckeye, the leaves are so similar.

The first reminds me of the bluets and the last of a Penstemone.

Ooooooo The first of the crocus have emerged and are in full bloom!
Think I'll move them to where they will be more visible next year once their florals vanish.

I did the same thing with the few crocuses I have. I put them where they are very visable since they are such a welcome sight in early spring.

You're welcome...I enjoy mind play.
I like trying to identify "whatever" is set into W.G. needing I.D. help.

I'm not very good at identifying bushes and trees...
Insects and birds...I do ok with If I've the time to look into my guides.
Now the Florals ....They are definitely more like my cup of tea.

At first the leaves reminded me of a catchfly, the way they arose from the main stem...Then again the Phlox also have leaves that attach direct like that but I knew neither of those matched the floral shapes you had... Then all of a sudden, both their names jumped out at me.
Thought jogs the mind and hopefully freshen things so one remembers it again in the future or we so hope.

Just starting to bloom, baptisia and marsh phlox. Green and gold has been going for a few days. Royal fern is sending up fertile fronds.

Roses and clematis, not native, are starting to bloom too. The air is fragrant right now. I just had to share plus the pollinators love them and the hips come later!
