Today I'll be postin "virginia bluebells" - tiny flowers that border my driveway (see reply #231 - split a plant last year & it took) and some from the back yard

This first one is a little special, as I was able ta catch a bee workin the nectar ...


and a close up (Bryan thinks it's my best virginia bluebell picture - I think they're all pretty much the same)


That first blue flower doesnt even look real...the one with the bee in there taking a nap....It is simply exquisit...

Where are your guesses as to what is the name of that plant I posted yesterday & again this mornin?

I've posted a profile closeup of the red poppy - here's an inside look at a peach coloured one ...

finally a second guess...

No. Dill's a tall plant. This one's barely 6 inches high (can grow ta near a foot high)

OK HINT #2: ya can make tea with it ...

You mean you guys don't have this little plant growin in yer yard? We had em growin everywhere back in Timmins. They grow in very dry hard dirt - or just about anywhere. If'n ya do - go pick one and rub/squish it - you'll recognise the odor.
