wildflower Wednesday - a walk in my garden

This is my first Wildflower Wednesday post!  I don't think I'll be a contributor every week month, but I hope to share some of the wildflowers as they make appearances in my yard.  I took these pictures with my phone on Sunday, during a walk around my house.

If this is your first visit to my blog, I moved into my great grandmothers cottage house last November, so this is my first spring in my new house.  She passed away when I was 9, so I do not have many memories of her yard, and this year is a year of discovery for me.  Here is a little bit about why I'm loving being in this house, and a little bit about what I'm doing in the garden.

Possibly a thistle?

 I hope you have enjoyed my instagram filtered wildflowers!  Thanks for stopping by :)

Edit 5/24/12:  Wildflower Wednesday is monthly, not weekly.


  1. Cool that you have so many wildflowers in the yard. I'm pretty sure that first one is horsenettle. It's not really a nettle (though it does have nasty thorns) but really its in the nightshade family, along with tomatoes and eggplants. Don't the flowers look like eggplant flowers? I wouldn't sample the fruit, though - they're poisonous! Deadly nightshade is in the family too.

    1. Thanks for the ID and the note that they're poisonous! The horsenettle is my favorite surprise in my yard this week...even though its in the ditch beside my driveway I think it's so pretty. :)

  2. Welcome to WW and what a wonderful showing! Emily it's only once a month so much more manageable than weekly! gail

    1. Thanks for the clarification about weekly vs monthly! That *is* much more manageable :) I'll see you next month, if not before!

  3. Black-Eyed Susans are great Summer flowers. May they multiply!
    Have a blessed day!

  4. lovely! I have that weed - er - wildflower :) too. Just saw the pretty bloom this morning and was thinking that it was definitely like an eggplant flower.

  5. just fyi - a malware virus warning popped up when I tried to get on your blog... feel free to delete this comment if you like!


Sooooo, the spammers have finally discovered my blog. I'm not sure if that means I've 'made it', but it does mean that I have turned on comment moderation for my older posts. Don't worry though, I get the notifications quickly, and promise to read and publish anything that doesn't include random comments or suspicious links.
