Today, I have gathered a collection of the wildflowers that we are seeing this week in our woods.
I don' t have a clue on the names of any of these, so those of you that are experts in wild flower names of northern climate wildflowers, let me know if you know the names of any of these.
First, these purple, tall ones. They remind me of wild phlox. But I have no idea what they are:
These are much shorter, but they have an electric purple color to them and I liked them:
Look what landed on the purple tall ones! I loved this little guy's (moth?) head and body!:
These were also shorter wild flowers...about 12 inches tall...I really liked their fuzzy heads and purple spikes!:
These are like wild bluebells....only they are a bluish purple:
These are AWESOME. I loved their striped centers. They are small like the size of musk mallow on a bush..but I do not know their name:
Can you tell I really like these? I took many closeups of them:
And, I had to take this photo of the Blue Jay....I loved how he contrasted with the green, green woods and the tiny wild rosebush on the right of the photo:
