A late Wildflower Wednesday

Spring is SUCH a busy time at work, I forgot about Wildflower Wednesday, in spite of a sticky note reminding me.

This is a PEAK time for wildflowers in the Southeastern US  -- many of the early spring ephemerals are past, but there's still plenty in flower.

Hmm, can I count a introduced winter annual? Chickweed?  Yikes.  Here's a photo of a squirrel munching away....

I don't know if it exactly counts as a wildflower - but coltsfoot is blooming (when the sun is out) along our roadsides. I transplanted some into a bank by our cellar door and it has spread beautifully. I hope choking out some weeds.

I enjoy hearing from fellow nature lovers and gardeners. Let me know your thoughts.
