Wildflower Wednesday Spring #WordlessWednesday

Years ago, I spent part of a year posting Wildflower Wednesday.  This Wednesday I decided to do it again.

A brief walk on a floodwall near where I live.  It's along the Susquehanna River, and besides the geese, dogwalkers like to frequent the wall.  When I take my lunchbreak (working from home for now), I walk there with my spouse.  It's usually empty at noontime - just us, some robins, and some geese.

And wildflowers, such as toothwort.  They like the slope of the wall, so it was a little hard to photograph.

Dandelions are so common, you might ask, why photograph them? Here's why.

Finally, forget me nots.  No, I won't forget you.  I won't forget this day, or this year, or this time.

These are little wild treasures for our enjoyment. Even as the lockdown eases, it is not ready to sound the "All Clear". Stay safe and healthy, my dear readers.

  1. Dandelions are pretty as long as they are not in our yard. When they turn to fuzz, then they are terrible looking.

  2. Lovely images and the flowers never fail to cheer me up. The Dandelion, never mind the fact that it is a weed, is so pretty!! They do have medicinal properties. Seen some pretty ones in Japan last year.
    Thanks for sharing this lovely post, Alana and for linking up with us this week.

    Happy #ww and a lovely week ahead to you! :)

  3. You call them wildflowers. I call them weeds. (Not so much anymore, since I no longer have a lawn- but a bed of pachysandra.)

  4. I love all the colors of spring. So beautiful.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥

  5. Still spring here and outside! Very much alive images!
    Thank you for the linking and for the visit!
    Happy WW and all the best!

  6. I bet those lunchtime walks are very nice.

  7. I love the sunny dandelion! And the leaves are my Guinea pig's favorite! Have you seen the white and pink ones? The pink are lovely. You can buy seeds for those. Well, you can buy seeds for the "weedy" ones too, they are very nutritious and popular to grow as food!

  8. Absolutely delightful ones from your walk, Alana. Please keep sharing more. Dandelions have a lot of medicinal value too.

    The toothwort and forget-me-nots are enchanting too.

    Thanks for this lovely nature walk, on our #WordlessWednesday blog hop. :)

  9. Hi Alana - the Spring flowers are wonderful aren't they - be they ones in the wrong place, or just those we accept as in the right place. Your walk sounds lovely ... take care - Hilary

  10. The beauty of wildflowers is undeniable.
