Wildflower Walk

Today I thought I'd share with you a few of the wildflowers near our house.

 Culver's Roots (I think)

Horsemint

Horsemint and Happy Bee

Daisies

Brown-eyed Susan

Campion (in honor of Albert)


 and Poison Ivy (just so you know to stay away from it)



Have a Great Thursday!

wow, that's so great. I miss living surrounded by nature instead of buildings. Someday...

I didn't know that Campion was called so. I used to have so many in my backyard, and as a I child I would have fun breaking them apart and taking out the seeds inside.

I love to hear from a gardener the phrase "happy bee"...it reminds me of why we have bees...most people in my urban community don't like bees...I'm glad to be reminded that bees have purpose! Thoroughly enjoy your beautiful pictures, as usual :)

Thank you for the nice comments. I love flowers, wild or 'tame.' :-)

You're right, Robin. We all need to remember that if it weren't for the bees pollinating the flowers of plants, we wouldn't have many of the fruits and veggies we enjoy every day!

Honeybee numbers seem to be declining, so we should be happy for every little honey bee we see, and not be afraid of them. Usually, they're so occupied getting nectar that we're the least of their concerns - unless we get in the way.

But I'm not so happy about the wasp that stung me today! :-( Two hours later and it STILL stings!

Abby, I was just telling a friend today that she could keep her 18 mo. old entertained if she would get him a bucket of peas in the pod and an old egg carton, show him how to shell the peas and put them in the little compartments. I think little kids love stuff like that! :-) (at least my kids did.)

Okay, time for Sherlock Holmes.

Wow, so beautiful! It makes me miss Wisconsin. It's beautiful here as well, but never as green as Wisconsin.

Thank you for all your sweet, thoughtful comments on my blog. You always make me smile.
