My home sits on a small patch of alpine meadow surrounded by dwarfed hemlock and alder forests. Each spring is an elfin explosion. None of the plants you see are more than three inches tall and some are less than one inch. These are all blooming in my yard right now.
Above is wooly lousewort. It has an interesting name and is not yet at its peak. I'll try to remember to capture it when it is rocking.
A mountain avens.
I think this is a one-colored cinquefoil.
Some dwarf dogwood.
The lovely blackish oxytrope (I kid you not!).
A gorgeous alpine azalea.
And finally, dwarf blueberry. I will eventually make some jam with these!
