I'm sharing a few more flower photos here - of the brave flowers who break out blooming in this season when we can see snow one day and flowers the next.
Here was Shyla running across a big snow drift.
It was a cold and damp day so the Pasqueflowers (wild crocuses) had closed their flowers tight.
I love how the little hairs on the Pasqueflowers hang onto the water droplets.
The Pasqueflowers even survive big snows. This one had bloomed just before we got a foot of snow. When the snow melted a few days later, here it was - waiting to open its flower again!
And this is what Pasqueflowers look like on a glorious spring day!
Shyla particularly loves seeing the Kinnickinnic flowers. They are tiny, less than a quarter inch across but they turn into berries when pollinated. The berries are often called "Bear Berries" because bears eat huge quantities of them in the late summer. Surprisingly, Shyla also LOVES to eat the berries. I've tasted them, and they're nothing special. But Shyla thinks so!
Springtime is so bright that Shyla has gotta wear shades!
