March 18 2012 Our unusual Sunday afternoon walk? My sister Sugar and niece Amy came with Mike and me for this walk. Well, Amy is young and has good eyes, she spotted all the wildflowers first.
Doesn't look like much as we start out down the trail.
Spring Beauty (Claytonia virginica) Purslane family
Blood Root (Sanguinaria canadensis) Poppy Family
Purple Cress (Cardamine douglasii) Mustard family
I'm not sure what these are, puff balls?
Frog, Leopard Frog?
Snake, Garter Snake
Purple Dead Nettle (Lamium purpureum) Mint family
Persian Speedwell (Veronica persica) Figwort Family
As usual my photos aren't as crisp as I would like, but that's what I get for not having the patience to use an advanced camera, just my good old point and shoot. I just want the flower to look like what I see with my eyes but not have to fuss with different settings. If I had a better memory I could just look at the flower then remember it. I guess I don't have to take pictures at all, I have lots of books with pictures of the flowers already. Hm...
Needless to say I had fun.
