It is getting to be peak wildflower season in my part of the country, a couple of weeks ahead of the usual time. I took a walk in my new neighborhood, and this is what I saw.This is growing on our property, along the path I am making by the big brook. This is growing on our property along the small brook. This grows in our lawn. This grows alongside the road. I think it is related to the Lady’s smock. Also alongside the road. Very odd looking. I don’t think this is a native. Another roadside plant. This was the only one I saw, whereas most of the others were, if not plentiful, then at least existing in patches. Thanks to Christopher C. of Outside Clyde, who helped me identify it. This is along the big brook on our property, and also in a hollow near the road. This is what inspired me to take a walk today. My husband told me the white trilliums were blooming all over the glen. There were several large patches of them, and I found all of the other roadside flowers in the course of hunting for the trilliums. This was perched at the top of a rather high ditch.
As you can imagine, I was thrilled to find all these native plants growing within walking distance of my home.
Posted for Wildflower Wednesday, created by Gail of Clay and Limestone, to share wildflowers/native plants no matter where you garden in the blogasphere. “It doesn’t matter if we sometimes show the same plants. How they grow and thrive in your garden is what matters most. It’s always the fourth Wednesday of the month!”
