Everyday I find a new wildflower appearing. These Columbine come in many color variations. The seeds are numerous, and spread new plants every year.

It’s difficult to pick a favorite, but I do love this all purple one.

Mayapples are everywhere, also increasing every year.

From this blossom comes the Mayapple. They are edible, but I’ve never tried one. Maybe I’ll be brave this year.

Stone crop is such a pretty ground cover, but other plants often grow among the flowers. Just like most of the rest, it spread everywhere.

What could be more elegant than the Jack-in-the-Pulpit? I’ve shared them with many, and they reward me by multiplying. However, when I went back to see this one, something had eaten it down to the bottom. Thankfully, there are many others here and there.

The ubiquitous daisies are still charming. They make beautiful bouquets, and bloom even more when picked.

Solomon’s Seal flowers are about to open. Some of these wildflowers are considered weeds. This one can become a pest.

This is another pretty ground cover, but I can’t identify it. Please comment if you know it’s name.

  1. Just love the Columbine, never knew they could grow this high..so many wonderful plants, so little time. Also Thanks so.oo much for pointing out all the poison ivy, now all I have to do is figure out how to kill it. Maybe I can sneak up on it in the dead of night, pound it repeatedly with a ball-peen hammer, and flee on foot before it once again tries to snare my by the ankles. Anyone with an easier way, please HELP!!
