You may be surprised to find wildflowers in an urban area but - wildflowers can be found in so many places.
Friday, I took a walk with a friend along the Chenango River in downtown Binghamton, New York.
Dame's rocket (Hesperis matronalis) this year is so beautiful that it is hard to remember that it is an invasive plant. Strangely, while most people love the scent of this flower, I don't find it that pleasant. (I've blogged before about how I perceive certain scents, and my son is afflicted worse than I am.)
Virginia spiderwort (Tradescantia virginiana) was growing nearby.
Lychnis flos-cuculi) in a wet area of the park.
And finally, from the week before this, lawn daisies in Skaneateles, New York, which is near Syracuse. I found these flowers everywhere. Some do not find these welcome at all, as they will take over a lawn if you let them.
It seems like spring has just begun, but it is almost over. Next week is my last Spring Things. What do you think I should feature?
