While on my hike Saturday, I was privileged to see stands and stands of wildflowers in bloom. along with the exposed seed pods of plants whose flowers had already faded away. I happen to think the seed pods are every bit as beautiful as the flowers, so naturally I had to take lots of pictures. I’m sure many bird families are getting plentiful meals from all the seeds. The highly textured seed pods of thistles make them especially interesting.
I saw tons of queen anne’s lace in bloom too. This is a lovely, delicate bloom made up of thousands of very tiny flowers. I love the organic, lacey shapes of this plant.
These happy yellow wildflowers were all around too, adding a bright splash of color to the landscape.
And here are some views overlooking the lake. This was a great time to go on a hike here.
Blessings to you,
