Sure is Spring - May 30

It's well and truly spring bloom now! The starflower is shining and the seeps are awash in violets: 

The pink ladies are out in force, and they're stunning!

Speaking of orchids, the ever-so-subtle yellow coral root are blooming! 

And holy wow, the azaleas! I've been trying to catch them in bloom for 5 years so I could finally figure out which species they are. They smell divine, which helps identify them as early azalea (Rhododendron prinophyllum)

Just a few reasons why this is my favorite time of year!
