Flower Photo: Virginia Bluebells at EJC Arboretum

Virginia Bluebells Flower Photo By Aquariann

While walking through the Edith J. Carrier Arboretum at James Madison University, I photographed many pretty flowers growing wildly along the forest path. My favorite type were the Virginia bluebells, although the petals weren't too plentiful.

According to Gardening Know How, Virginia bluebells can bloom from early spring to mid summer, but don't do well with too much rain. And as I mentioned last Flower Friday, the rain gods danced through almost all of my Shenandoah Valley vacation and probably most of May like they did in Delaware.

How To Plant Your Own Post for Flower Friday:
The only rule to play is that you can only add one link per week! The post doesn't even have to mention flowers, but only ones that do will be eligible for being picked as a feature next week. I will be sharing my flower image on other blog hops, namely Wordless Wednesday, and welcome all family-friendly links from fellow bloggers. Crafters can even link up an Etsy listing or other shop product! But if you want to promote a prize, please add it to my Giveaway Chest Linky instead to entice more treasure hunters.

Please follow my blog through any of the social media icons in the upper right sidebar to receive a reminder to return next week. Adding my button or a text link to your own blog and sharing to your followers is also a fairy appreciated way to help my hop grow.

  12. My dream is to learn the names of the flowers that I am taking photos of. I am so jealous of you for knowing the names of them. These are so pretty!

    1. I'm learning as I go! It helps that botanical gardens and arboretums usually have name plaques near by. :D

  13. What a delicate flower in a beautiful blue shade! I've never seen this before.
