While doing my rounds this morning, I found some of my mother’s wild flowers suddenly blooming.
I remember seeing this splash of red in one area, last year. Now that I’ve cleared around it, I can actually get to them. Every time I walked past the area, I would look and wonder which of the plants had those bright red flowers. Yesterday, I didn’t even notice flower buds on these, yet this morning, they’re blooming!
The buds for these flowers have been visible for some time, but this is the first one to really start opening up. They are all over the area. I don’t know when my mother planted here, but they’ve been seeding themselves and spreading on their own, ever since. 🙂
While going through the maple grove, I checked on the wild strawberries.
I found 4 ripe berries. 😀
They are so incredibly tiny!
The teeniest of strawberries. 😀
