A Minnesota wildflower. Find them in sunny areas.
I love this time of year.
Blooming along the bike trails through Lilydale regional park. I great excuse to stop and take a picture. They should be around for a few weeks.
These birds never seem to stay still. Their song is so beautiful.
Birds seem to know when I want to photograph them and file away. This one didn’t but it isn’t much of a shot either with all of the branches in the way. He had such a nice song I could hear him from far away. He was singing his evening song.
I am really enjoying all of the green as I get ready to plant my kitchen herb garden. Some herbs will be seeded directly into the dirt in a week or two. I used to wait until memorial day but in recent years i have been planting in mid-May.
