I mentioned in another post that one of the things I love about my land is that every week seems to bring a new and different wildflower, from about mid-March to about mid-October. I thought it might be fun to capture them all here. Add yours!  

This week we have the ever beautiful redbuds beginning their show!  Perhaps not technically a wildflower, but it is wild, and it flowers, so it makes the thread!  And here are some tiny violet flowers, just peeking through.

A couple of wildflowers this week. First, the humble dandelion, a cheerful early spring arrival. Second, what Phil Gardner suggested in another post may be Blood Root. And third, a very small and delicate lavender flower, not sure what it is.

Some lovelies for your enjoyment this week. Future wild blackberries, planted by birds!  I can taste blackberry pie already. Yum.

And a daisy sort of arrangement.

For your viewing pleasure this week, we have a white rose-like plant flowering along the creek, a yellow daisy-ish flower, and an odd white curved flower that may not yet be in full bloom - will post more of that if it blossoms more. It is in sandy soil  along the creek.

Honeysuckle is blooming here too.

It smells so good outside near any woods.

On offer this week, courtesy of Mother Nature, a couple of lovelies for your viewing pleasure.

And yes, at some point I will be able to identify all of these flowers!  So much to learn, so little time...

One of my favorites this week - brown-eyed Susan, or Rudbeckia Hirta. I believe some call it Black-eyed Susan as well.

Have been AWOL for the last couple of weeks - too busy to stop and smell (photograph) the flowers perhaps. This week, Queen Anne’s Lace, Daucus Carota, or wild carrot, decorating my fence line. Couldn’t have arranged it better if I tried!  

Said to have numerous health benefits related to the urinary tract.
