I will have to look for a wild flower book. I always say that I know the ones where I grew up but it is different here I would love to know what I am seeing

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

sounds like a beautiful walk! i try to snap photos of flowers on my walks (when the birds are too fast for me!), then i can look them up in my field guide later. i've seen bittersweet nightshade, yarrow, bull thistle, and bladder campion. ...

...the other day i saw 2 great blue herons on the pond. i'm going to add them to my photo gallery soon.
have a great day everyone - happy birding & blooming!

I always mean to bring my little wildflower book with me on walks but I always forget. One of these times I WILL remember!

Good morning all! I walked to and from the gym today and saw these along the way:

1) Buttercups
2) Mouse-eared Hawkweed (yellow, dandelion-like)
3) Mouse-eared Chickweed (little white flowers)
4) Cinquefoil (yellow, tiny, not sure if Dwarf Canadian or Common)
5) Oxeye Daisies
6) Blue-eyed Grass
7) Blackberry canes a-bloom in white

We're up at about 1900 feet in the mountains of north eastern PA. Roadside soil and open mowed fields tend to attract these plant types up here ("impoverished" is how this soil is characterized). I've been identifying flowers around here for years. I checked the Audubon book on a couple of these. I always carry a little notebook and pen so I can sketch and jot down a few words to help me identify them when I get home.

Happy Memorial Day Weekend, Friends!
