Teeny Tinies

The smallest of the flowers arrive in the spring when your eyes are caught by their easy diminutive  beauty against the gray/greens of everything else.  Soon the bolder and larger blossomed plants arrive and these fall to the background, forgotten.

 This is speedwell and it really speeds very well across the lawn and beds and everywhere.


Lungwort has such an unattractive name, but is a soft rally of little pink bells against a spotted green leaf.

The first blooms are tiny but very tough.

Such beauty in small packages.

Pretty- I didn't know the name of the first one, but have seen it before, or one like it.

Early Spring flowers are are tiny and delicate looking, but we don't overlook them because we are searching for them eagerly.
We call Speedwell Veronica, but I do like the common name for the little creeping guys.
Lungwort is Pulmonaria if you like that better.
