Wildflowers

I took these photos in the backyard today after I spotted all the pretty wildflowers.

Dame’s rocket has become my favorite wildflower, but I’m pretty sure I read somewhere that it’s invasive.

What are some of your favorite wildflowers?

  1. Spring time I really like Trillums, there are so many different kinds. Of course in spring all wild flowers charm and delight the winter weary mind. Right now I’m leaning toward Daisies as a favorite. Then there are all the wild flowering bushes like Elderberry, but here in our woods the georgeous Mountain Laurel is in bloom Later I really like Queen Anne Lace and Joe Pye Weed. This is just the beginning, like my children and grandchildren all flowers offer their own special gifts.

    believe it or not – dandelions and bluettes. My youngest picked a bunch of bluettes and put them in a glass of water for mothers day and they are still alive! such happy tiny flowers

  3. I love these photos. The unknown white wildflower is my favorite. Are you strolling this Sunday?

  4. Star of Bethlehem is your unknown flower.

    I think I like anything which is fragrant the best, ha ha.

  5. I think that my favorite wildflowers are trillium, dutchman’s breeches, and trout lily. I love spring in the woods!
