Hi everyone on this lovely Sunday morning! Well, here we are with some more wildflower pictures for you to enjoy. First we had white flowers, last week was yellow and this week we are going to have purple, or violet, flowers. I hope you will like this week’s selection. The first one I think I have shown before, can’t quite remember, but here it is again anyway. These are harebells. They are found in fields and forest alike.
Next we have the cow vetch. You may remember that I showed the crown vetch a while back. This one is a slightly smaller variety and found along roads and in fields.
Next is the common vervain which is normally found along lakeshores, rivers and streams. It can grow to about 3 feet (1meter) tall.
Last in the group for today is the large-leaved aster. We have a number of different species of asters here and all grow from late summer to fall. This one is most commonly found in forest locations. Not one of the showy asters but very common.
Last on our list for today is the dog violet. Violets are small but this one is the largest of the group we have in this area and can be nearly an inch (2.5cm) across. This is actually a spring flower.
Well, that’s all for today’s wildflower pictures. Next week we look at some pink varieties. Enjoy your Sunday and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
