In this first photo, the Virginia Bluebells are at peak bloom right now and show themselves off nicely: In this next photo, a bluebell plant has hit peak bloom and is now starting the process of developing seeds which will later […]

I Can’t Get Too Much of These!

Today I’m featuring some more Virginia bluebells (aka, Virginia cowslip) wildflower images captured at one of my “shorty” Woodland Wildflower workshops last week. These are one of my favorite woodland wildflowers and the landscape can become quite breathtaking when there are hundreds of these beauties blooming at the same time! They should continue blooming for […]
