May: Wild Flowers

Please be sure to visit Jude at The Earth Laughs in Flowers to see many other beautiful flowers. To learn more about her garden photography challenge, click here.

These first two flowers are growing in our yard. I do not know the name of the white flower. We did not plant them and, as far as we know, the lady that lived here before did not. They are naturally occurring yard enhancers and I love them, especially the oxalis.

This flower, Queen Anne’s Lace, is growing all over the roadsides here on the Texas Gulf Coast. As the bluebonnets of April are on their way out, the Queen Anne’s Lace is waking up. This bunch is being visited by little lovebugs. As I was taking this photo, those bugs were everywhere!

    Pretty oxalis or what we call wood sorrel, I think your white one might be a stitchwort, and I love the hedgerows in summer when filled with the frothy cow parsley (Queen Anne’s Lace). At the moment the hedgerows in Cornwall are full of wild garlic, bluebells, gorse, sitichwort, red campion and bladder campion so very colourful! Thanks for joining in 🙂
