Since they flower without leaves, they just appear without warning.
This is a picture of one taken early in the morning, before it fully opens.
The colchiums are growing very close to one of my many lavender plants. After the lavender finishes blooming I cut them back, but this plant has decided to give flowering one more try.
I was very surprised to see a few flower stems.
This is the flower of Sedum 'Matrona', they are usually a brighter shade of pink.
But this plant always flowers this soft pink color.
One lone flower on the Campanula persicifolia (Bellflower).
This is a volunteer from the many sunflower seeds the chipmunks collect from under the
birdfeeds and plant around the garden.
