Flowers

I was at the old house in town and I saw these flowers. Around here they are known as surprise lilies or Johnny-Jump-ups. The flowers come up first then the foliage appears and will stay green until frost.

I also saw this coreopsis blooming here at the homestead.

I also have a clump of perennial morningglories blooming. They are nice and bright early in the morning, that is why they are called morningglories!

    Beautiful. The pink ones we call Naked Ladies.

      That would be appropriate since they come up with no foliage.
