New Peony Plants in My Garden

Last year I planted two new peony plants in my garden because quite frankly, I can't get enough of them. Even though their bloom time is short, I love their beauty and fragrance.

Virginia Spring Beauty - Minnesota Wildflower

Another one of my photos from a spring walk in Nerstrand Big Woods State Park. This one is a native Minnesota wildflower called Virginia Spring Beauty, or Claytonia Virginica. The flowers are so small I almost walked right by them near the waterfall.

White Trout Lily

Visiting Nerstrand Big Woods State Park every Spring is one of my favorite rituals. This year will be my third year photographing Spring wildflowers in Minnesota. I took this shot of a White Trout Lily last year, which are small and sometimes hard to find if you don't know what you are looking for. I have yet to capture one open.
