These wildflowers are perennial and are in full bloom in a park or wild area near you. I found these on the grounds of the Science Museum of Minnesota. I always enjoy a late evening walk through the gardens to see what is blooming.
The road is partly closed but the bike path is open in Lilydale regional park along the Mississippi River. it is such a beautiful park, full of wildflowers, wildlife and of course empty plastic water bottles and old tires.
Blooming in the woods where there were piles of snow a week ago. I took this at Battle Creek Regional park which is one of the best areas in the city to find native vegetation and fast food wrappers and empty soda containers.
These wildflowers don’t grow just anywhere and they were in season in early september on the North shore of lake superior near Two Harbors. They were blooming in bunches in spite of the drought. The leave are blueish green and the flowers are fairly small but I notice them right away because there are not all that many flowers with brown centers.
The dog bane has beautiful little pink flowers but it isn’t blooming yet. I love the smell of the flowers but also the color of the leaves. They are kind of blue green with red stems and they look especially beautiful after it rains.
Nothing says spring in Minnesota like wild geraniums. Actually they don’t say anything they are just plants. The sun is out today. 😉
