  1. Dear Gail, those would make a most delightful and stunning calender! I do hope you have taken the jump and done so! It is always time to think about wildflowers.

  2. Good morning, Gail! Frances' suggestion is an excellent one--this would make a beautiful calendar! I am entranced by your photo of the GOBN; it looks so inviting, the perfect place for a peaceful woodland walk.

    I don't have any wildflowers in bloom right now--or if there are, they're buried in snow--but I did a little review of the past year, too. Thank you again for hosting this!

    Your last post is a good reminder of what this season is all about. Wishing you and your family a very blessed Christmas, Gail!

  3. I love all but that Claytonia has such a delicate beauty and seems to live up to its name....blooming in the clay of your garden. Sweet!

  4. My favourite meme, the one I try to follow. My post is on the flowers that say Christmas.

  5. I enjoyed the Oenothera, it is such a delicate bloom. I will have to look it up more, we have 8 varieties here in Iowa. Pink always catches my eye, and has a particular grace in a garden.

  6. Your calendar is beautiful and that January shot is captivating!

    I don't think the water lily actually counts as a wildflower but it's blooming right now in my pond and that seems to qualify as a little Christmas magic! Merry Christmas!

  10. So when is the calendar coming out? I want to place my order. These are really great images and very calendar worthy.

    I never heard of Claytonia, what an unusual name for such a delicate and prety little flower.

  13. Dear Gail, I too think this would be a wonderful calendar! Lovely, lovely images of your wild flowers. I admit to exclamations over your June shot of Oenothera! May is so lush and beautiful. The delicate Claytonia pulling itself out from under the leaf . . . pure poetry. Beautiful post!! Hugs, Carol

  20. Merry Christmas! (I got your card today -- thank you! Hope the seeds germinate for you, I didn't test them, but I have proof in my garden that they seem to be pretty good "germinators")

    What lovely photos for winter!

    Hugs,
    Freda
