There is no need to go far from my home to see the lovely wildflowers growing in the woods and along the paths. My home is on a wooded lot and these gorgeous Wild Phlox in all shades of purple and white bloom each year in mid to late May.
They bloom in abundance and fill the green of the woods with their vibrant color. There are plenty of blooms to pick for a bouquet, as well as to admire from afar.
The variation in colors is amazing. These lighter purple blossoms were found along my walking path.
There are sweet white blooms mixing with the shades of purple too.
As I was walking, I spotted these dainty yellow flowers and after some research, I think they might be a wildflower called Black Mustard. They are related to the mustard we all eat on our hotdogs.
These pretty white wildflowers were hiding in some brush at the edge of the path. I love the frilly centers and the delicate leaves. They may be Dewberry flowers, a common wildflower many think of as a weed. The leaves can be used to make tea.
Whether I am enjoying the sight of these wonderful wildflowers from my patio or as I am walking on the paths in my neighborhood, I know I am fortunate to have these gifts from nature right in my backyard.
Have a wonderful weekend!
