PlantFiles is getting a new look! Just in time for spring, we're rolling out a new look for the best online plants database. It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.
I can't believe the difference a few days of sun can make ! Everything is just shooting out of the ground. The birds are chattering away and splashing in the birdbaths. Spring has sprung and it is warming the cockles of my heart !

MG99, wonderful photos and the Fawn Lilies really bring back memories. I kinda grew up on Galiano Island on weekends, etc and one of my favorite things to do as a kid, when I wasn't doing gyprock work, mixing cement, etc., was to find one of the mossy-lichen rock outcrops, lie on my back, watch the sky, listen to the ocean & wind in the Arbutus and at this time of year there'd be lots of Fawn Lilies blooming all around.
I believe the purple flower is Sisyrinchium (Olsynium) douglasii (Douglas' Blue-Eyed Grass) but not sure. The white one might be Cardamine angulata (Angled Bitter-Cress) but can't say for sure either. The past few days have sure been nice and a very welcomed change from the snow we had last week Wednesday. The ornamental plums are in full bloom everywhere and the nursery I work at is already in "panick stations".
