2010: Year Of The Wildflower

This year is ‘The Year of the Wildflower’ for me. Last March I noticed that there were a number of different wildflowers near the road and wondered how many different wildflowers grow on our place during the year.

I started photographing and working to identify each. I’d hoped to post photographs as I found new flowers. Sometimes it was easy to identify them but others were more challenging. So I decided to work on identifying them during the year and post them as they started to flower this year. That way I would be able to include any that flowered before March.

This series will include any native flowers that I find during the year – mainly in Walton County and Barrow County including Fort Yargo State Park – but the focus will be on those at home.
