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.
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.
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!
