Thanks to Sandy for the ID of the Woodland Sunflower. I then bought the book “Wildflowers of Michigan – Field Guide” by Stan Tekiela to ID some others. The updated IDs are listed below each flower where available. Again, if you have a different name, let me know.
When I walk around the dirt roads and paths near here I see lots of blooms. Are they flowers or are they weeds? I guess one man’s treasure is another man’s trash, but to me they are all beautiful. Some are so small you almost miss them if you don’t look closely. Others are so big you can’t miss them. Here are a few that I photographed this afternoon. I’ve tried to name those that I can, but if you know the name, or a different name, please let me know through the comments.
So, keep your eyes open and see all the beauty around us.
