Some Prairie Flowers

I have been trying to trudge through this winter and have been looking for winter photo opportunities.  But it is cold outside, and it gets dark soon.  Plus, I recently saw a web site with a number of prairie flower photos.  And it made me feel good.  So here are some flower pictures, for no particular reason.


Of course, most of my flower pictures are pictures of bugs sitting on the flowers.




So, in another five or six months we will be seeing a little bit of color.


I can hardly wait.

    What are the plants shown in the first two photos?

  2. The top one is a fleabane–I am not sure which species. The second one is called hoary vervain, Verbena stricta. Both are native prairie plants, often considered weeds by farmers (but I like them)

    Lovely images. At least your weather seems to behaving fairly normally!
