The U.P. rain came down and splattered everything in sight, including this shiny green plant, that seems to be holding onto the drops that have accumulated on its leaves. Hopefully, Judy Byykkonen will tell us what this plant is, since I haven't a clue and I'm not going to even try a guess. No matter what it's called it sure looks happy with it's rain-soaked foliage. Of course with the showers, come more flowers, so Judy also included a picture of several "bells" from a Lily of the Valley she spotted growing and also some delicate little Forget-me-nots. It's such a pretty time of year with all the colorful flowers sprouting up everywhere and these are two of my favorites. Now if it would just warm up for more than a day or two at a time, we'd be all set. :->

Very nice pictures.

I think they are 'peony' leaves. But I may be wrong. :)

I could be wrong, however, I don't think those are "Baby Blues." I believe what are usually called "Baby Blues" usually have more of a white center and are larger, having more rounded petals. The flowers pictured are what I believe most folks typically call "Forget-me-nots."

Anyone find arbutus this spring? Would be a nice picture to see.

I love them pictures. I have a bunch of forget me nots growing around the huge maple tree in my front yard. They sure are really pretty flowers. A lot of wild flowers tend to be more attractive than the ones you can buy at flower shops for some odd reason lol

I believe that unnamed plant is a peony, not positive though.
