Where did I find these wildflowers?
They are just a few of the species of native plants that I have growing in the garden at our house.
Our garden is not all native plants. We also have a number of spring-flowering bulbs in bloom right now such as tulips, allium, and grape hyacinth. I like the color provided by these plants while we wait for the later-blooming native plants to flower. There will be waves of color all growing season, with the biggest show coming in later summer as the asters, goldenrods, and coneflowers take the stage.

There was also a couple of Common Dandelions flowering. I should pull them before seeds develop, but right now they are providing nectar and pollen to dozens of tiny bees.
