Wordless Wednesday: Wildflower

Wildflower

Almost wordless: Wildflower seen on my walk through the prairie a few weeks ago. At first I thought this was Milkweed, but now I’m not so sure.

    Very pretty. So here’s my question, if the weeds in my flowerbed start to bloom, can I just call them wildflowers and pretend they’re supposed to be there? 🙂

      Yes, unless they are an invasive species, then they should probably be removed. These were planted in an area where the prairie was rehabbed, so I wouldn’t mind if a few seeds got stuck on my shoes and followed me home!

    Leslie,

    Your photo is so pretty. The color’s magnificent. If that’s milkweed, then it’s even better!
    I am a HUGE fan of Monarchs. 🙂

      Me too. The leaves looked like the milkweed in my garden, but my flowers weren’t this deep in color.

      I was so excited to find two monarch caterpillars last month. I can’t find a chrysalis, but the caterpillars were huge last week, so I suppose they’ve gone into that stage somewhere in the garden.

    Aren’t milkweed flowers more like a round ball? Regardless of what they are, they are lovely. That must have been a fantastic walk.

      Yeah, they are. When I got home I compared the photo to the milkweed in my yard and it didn’t have those little tendrils on the edges and wasn’t as vibrant in color.
