I don't get it - why should you be wrong?🤨 I agree with you that those are tulips.
Are the king's orange a type of tulip? When I saw that I thought I had the wrong thing.when I was really little I used to watch a guy named Ed Hume every Saturday morning. I'm not sure if he was broadcasting nationally or just local. Anyway, some of the knowledge stuck and other parts of it I'm sure are in there somewhere.

Lupine. Very common in the Northwest USA (Lupinus laxiflorus)

I thought this was called "Indian sage" but there is no such listing in my Hand book of Northwest Plants. SO I am going to have to blow the 35 years of dust of my brain the holds the use of a Dichotomy Key and figure out the true identity of the nice smelling but still a garden weed.

This is another one that showed up about 6 years ago and is becoming a pest. I do not know the name so I will also have to work on Identifying it.

I also want to put out a big Kutoos to Gentletides for starting this world wide virtual herbarium!!!!

I have two others in my yard that are not quite blooming yet to post.

the lupine are definitely the most interesting plants so far! they remind me of brussels sprouts.

Did you take these? Your damn good at this.
Yep, they're mine 😁
I think more credit goes to mother nature for putting on the show and the Japs for making the cameras. I just pointed and pressed a button.
Although, getting to the place to press the button can be knackering:


A kestrel (?) snoozing in the winter sun on a willow (?) branch. I crawled through frozen moorland, with the dog attached to my ankle, to get close enough for this, in the hope that it'd awake and do something interesting, but it just kept right on snoozing.
