Winter Wildflower Walk

I had a wonderful time out searching for the remains of more wildflowers on a chilly winter morning. I took my camera so you can see what I found.

Goldenrod - Golden yellow in the summer

Wild Sunflowers - So cheery on hot July days

At this time of year the birds have already eaten all the seeds.

A single rosehip

Sagebrush - it really is kind of pretty though in the warm light

Yarrow - Grows hardily where other flower perish quickly

Black-eyed Susan - A favorite flower. I even like the distinctive seed head.

Unidentified composite - I'd love to know what this one is called.

Star thistle - A noxious weed to some, but it does have it's beauties,
for those looking for wonder.

Wouldn't it be fun to make a journal of wildflower through the seasons in our individual areas.

1 bouquets of wildflowers (Comment here):

You can keep your star thistle! We have pulled ours all up by hand to get it out of our yard.
