a flowering wild onion that was accidentally transplanted with some native cactus plants years ago. the onion grows strategically enough within the cactus plant that it has earned a permanent place in the garden. it's actually quite pretty. the blossoms aren't completely opened up yet but their getting there . . .
i have some wooly thyme growing in a rock garden area and it is also blossoming. this is a very close macro and these flowers are uber tiny . . . roughly the size of a ball headed pin.
i discovered a tiny green grasshopper sitting on top of one of the snow on the mountain blossoms. it seemed to be enjoying the sudden change in the weather also. i love the color green that it is~!~
the iris are just beginning to unfurl their buds . . . another day or two and i will have a few flowers~!!~
