Minnesota wildflowers blooming by the river and probably in a park near you if you live in Twin Cities.
If you look hard enough you will see the red winged blackbird. If not just take my word for it.
Looking toward St. Paul from the east. These are the wetlands near the river. A great place for bird watching and wildflower hunting. This is along the same bike trail where I took the last two pictures and this is one of the reasons why I love my bike.
