May is a magnificent month for flowers, both cultivated at home --- and wild at our mountain cabin. Sometimes the mountain wildflowers need to be sought out, as they can have tiny blooms and hide well in forest undergrowth. I've observed that the purple and white flowers bloom earliest, then the yellows, and lastly the reds. It's a beautiful cacophony of color when they are finally all in bloom! Learning their names can be somewhat of a puzzle for me, but I am working at naming and remembering them the best I can. The flowers below were all in bloom at our cabin on Memorial Day week-end. Aren't they pretty?
And now it's time to start on the June list...
