Firstly, as many of you I am sure already suspect, I am not a world renowned botanist who has worked extensively as a consultant for Nature and the National Geographic. In fact the only two flowers I can identify are the daffodil and the crocus.  It should also be noted the effort I took to get these pictures. Some of them were takeas far away as TWO BLOCKS from my house.

On a more serious note, I am surprised that the daffodils bloomed before the crocus. The crocus is always the first flower around here. Maybe it has something to do with our mild winter.

Anyway, I hope this adds a little color to your Winter afternoon. :)

This is the first daffodil I have seen this year.

Here is a crocus in my back yard about to open.

I believe this is what is called a pinkish purple flower that bugs like to crawl around on.

Here is the first rose I've seen (huh, I guess I know the names of three flowers).

OK, I don't know the names of any of the rest of these flowers, so you are on your own.

And what collection form Portland would be complete without a picture of moss?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
