Sunday’s Pictures #2.

Good morning everyone and here we are with the second in this month’s series of wildflowers from this area.  This week I am showing just yellow wildflowers and of course this is just a sample of the many yellow wildflowers that we have here.  I hope you will enjoy these pictures.  The first is the common, or tall, buttercup.IMG_4536

I had to shade the buttercup.  Due to its waxy petals it really shines in the sun making it a bit difficult to get a good picture.  This next flower is the northern bush-honeysuckle.IMG_4899

This next flower is the nodding loosestrife.  A little difficult getting a picture of one since they hang upside down.  Fortunately I found one growing on a hill which helped a lot.IMG_5353

Finally we have the Canada hawkweed which, in spite of it’s name, is a wildflower, not a weed.  They look somewhat like a dandelion but are up to 2 feet (60cm) tall.IMG_5687

Well, I hope you have enjoyed today’s selection of wildflowers.  I also hope you enjoy your Sunday and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

  1. I remember seeing buttercups in the woodlands of Riverland on my grandparents’ property…my grandma would never let me pick them…it was so tempting ! She said it made her happy when she was sad…love the idea of displaying the beautiful array of God’s designs !
