Wildflowers


Yesterday, Hub and I went for a ride to see wildflowers.  We went south on the Natchez Trace Parkway, then to Booneville, Mississippi, then home on Highway 72.


The wildflowers were not hard to find; in fact, they were everywhere we looked.

 I blogged about mayapple here.


Purple trillium


and purple grape hyacinths. They are small, but smell so good!


This butterfly found the wild phlox before I did.


When I was a child, we called these wild Sweet Williams.  We always picked them and carried them home for bouquets.  Maybe that is why I am not bothered with allergies as much as some people are.


We saw much more than wildflowers. . .
