Flowers seem like such a novelty after a few months of cold and snow. I keep noticing them and photographing them and planting them. The bees need good nutrition and that starts with Minnesota wildflowers.
I am not sure what these are but I photographed them anyway.
Currently in bloom just about everywhere.
One of my favorite activities is wildflower hunting in the woods. I shot these at Battle Creek Regional Park last weekend.
If you look hard enough you will see the red winged blackbird. If not just take my word for it.
There is a red winged blackbird in the center but it is hard to see in the sea of grass. The photo was taken in the wetlands along the Mississippi River near Battle Creek regional park.
