It’s been another awful week for photographing wildflowers. This morning it was sunny and fairly calm, so Elizabeth snapped a few for you to look at. The landscape is very yellow right now, as you can see. Maybe we can get out and take some sweeping views one evening. We’ve never seen so many flowers out as this year!
Common St. Johnswort – Hypericum perforatum. This is an invasive species. Elizabeth hasn’t seen it here before but, this year, it’s covering one of our hillsides.
Birds-foot Trefoil – Lotus corniculatus, another invasive species that the TransCanada Pipelines sowed when they cleaned up after their last pipe install. :o(
Golden Clover – Trifolium aureum, also sown by the TC Pipeline and now widespread.
This is a type of Hawkweed, but we aren’t sure just which one it is yet… Possibly Canada Hawkweed – Hieracium canadense.
Rough Cinquefoil – Potentilla norvegica
Red Clover – Trifolium pratense with an Oxeye Daisy – Leucanthemum vulgare
Alsike Clover – Trifolium hybridum. It often has more white showing than these do.
Maybe we’ll find some more for next week!
