Pennypacker Mills, No. 2, Some More Wildflower Views

Tuesday afternoon this week, I went for another hike at Pennypacker Mills near Schwenksville, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. Spring is flourishing there as exhibited by the following pictures.

Ya know I have some of those light blue one in my back yard. Wonder what they are.

I saw your comment on Pure Florida and got curious, so I stopped by. Nice blog.

Those are beautiful flowers that I don't see around here. It's nice to see spring in different parts of the country.

God bless and Happy Easter. He has risen...

Hi, paige. Thanks for dropping by. As you can see now, I have been able to identify those plants.

Glad you stopped by, hick. And it is wonderful to see flowering plants from around the country and the world.

Happy Easter to you, too. He is risen indeed.

I've been having fun seeing and taking pictures of wildflowers in our woods, some I've never seen before and have no clue what they're called. I'm gonna have to get a wildflower book of the southern varieties!

Tim Rice said...

ginnie, do get that wildflower book and if you haven't already post your pictures. I will enjoy seeing them. :)

I just love blue-bells.

When I was in England one Spring I walked through a wood with blue-bells growing everywhere underneath the trees--I remember it as a magical sight.

Your pictures reminded me of it.

Hi, spider girl. Glad I could help bring back a pleasant memory.

Hi, andrea. Those bluebells are amazing, aren't they. Nature has so much for us to see if we take advantage of our opportunities.
