Little did I know that I had so many Northern Ontario Wildflowers right outside my own backyard. Early this morning I grabbed a glass of iced tea to take a moment to relax in my screened-in porch. But when my eyes feel upon the wildflowers peeping out over the top of my creek bridge I knew now was the time to get my best shot of these lovely ladies, so back into the house I went to get my camera!
All of the Northern Ontario Wildflowers featured here are growing along what is now my dry creek bed banks.
We have had exceptionally warm weather this summer, which explains why we have so many more of the Northern Ontario Wildflowers growing this year.
My creek bed bridge borders with the woods at the edge of our little village. The black bear have recently been crossing it and using my backyard as a path to go scavenging into town. I’m not easily scared but I do have to admit that I did turn for an occasional look over my shoulder to see if there were any bear lurking there!
I remember this Purple Aster from my childhood days in Missouri. It was prolific along the roadsides there as well.
One of my favourite of the Northern Ontario Wildflowers is the dainty Forget-Me-Not. Maybe you remember the recent post that I wrote here on the Forget-Me-Not.
The Joe-Pye-Weed hasn’t opened completely yet, but it appears to be close.
I’m just so glad that I made the decision this morning to leave the dirty dishes in the sink and the floor not swept and make my way outside where I had opportunity to smell the
roses wildflowers! I only wish you could have been here to join me…
