Weeds!

Our website includes many images of the wildflowers around our home, but I thought it interesting to observe the so-called "weed" flowers that appeared during the first spring in the disturbed areas around our house.   Since this ground was a "blank slate" after its grading, most of these plants must have come from seeds in the grass & hay that was applied to prevent erosion on the graded slopes.   [taken from late April-May]
