These native flowers never bloom in the winter.
I think one of the reasons I enjoy riding my bike is because I get to see things that are off the beaten path up close. These are blooming by Pickerel lake, just across the street from the Mississippi River.
These wildflowers are currently in bloom. They seem to like sunny areas. Not all yellow flowers are dandelions.
Enjoy them before they freeze.
This seemed like a good picture for the last day of September.
All over the place in Northern Minnesota.
