Wildflowers in Winter - Part Two

For the week of January 23 to January 29, the assignment from Wildflower Morning is to show a winter image of a flower in your area. For more information, check my sidebar or visit the Wildflowers in Winter hostess , Elizabeth Joy of Wildflower Morning

This picture of the Dandelion and the green Ground Ivy leaves was taken on January 12, 2005. We had several inches of snow the next day.



I believe the flower in the following picture was some species of Aster that graced an old sandbox in our backyard this past autumn.



This specimen might be a remnant of a Motherwort plant, Leonurus cardiaca.



To join this winter festivity or simply view other winter blossoms, visit Wildflower Morning; she has a convenient list of participants.

Thanks for the kind words on my blog tonight. I enjoyed popping over and taking a look at your blog.

Looks like you are cold and snowy in your part of the world....we had snow this morning but it melted by mid-morning. It is still cold but the sun was out and we enjoyed lots of birdwatching today.

I am glad to get to know new blogs through the Wildflowers in Winter blog a thon.

Those dandelions are hardy fellows.

My bushes started sprouting buds after a couple of random 60 degree days. Poor bushes. They were so confused.

Thanks for visiting my site. I do have a mini rock garden in front of the house. Low growing sedum are perfect for such a garden. :-)

Nice to meet you.

I had plans to go out on Sunday and take photos and we had an ice storm that caused multi-car accidents. Needless to say - I stayed home

I got some pictures today tho.

So that is an aster in winter. We had a little plant with purple flowers that looked something like that, too.
