Happy Earth Day!  Virginia Bluebells, Mertensia virginiana, a woodland wildflower that is a herbaceous perennial.  The flower buds are pink with the flowers being blue, but white and pink are possible.  While living in Arizona my yard was full of Desert Bluebells aka California Bluebells.  Now that I am in Iowa, Virginia Bluebells will be in my yard.  These particular Virginia Bluebells were transplanted from the timber where my grandfather farmed to my aunt and uncle’s farm and just last week I transplanted several clumps to my backyard.
