Mystery Flowers and Daffodils

There are some flowers popping up by the roadside that I can't identify. They are small, no higher than five inches or so, and the flowers are small and delicate. I transplanted a few into my wildflower meadow.

I can identify the daffodils. I planted these among my wildflowers, and they are finally starting to bloom. They are meant to give a bit of color until the wildflowers bloom.

Tikka likes coming outside with me. She understands the rule that she must wear a harness. We had three cats run over in a two year time period. My four cats have a cat run that we built for them. 

Tikka is sampling the wild grasses that are growing on our property. This is the feline version of a salad bar.

It looks like spring has arrived in your area. Hurray! Our spring is definitely late but our azaleas are blooming. Tikka is beautiful!

Tikka's salad bar is so cute. ;) Sorry I can't tell you what the wildflower is, but perhaps someone on Blotanical will know and share their expertise.

A stunning photo of beautiful flowers. Thanks so much for posting these incredible delights of nature.

If you have a plant without a name - you could give it one yourself. Lots of wild plants have a variety of common names. Someone must have thought of each one in turn.

We don't have azaleas in our neighborhood since they were all wiped out by a hurricane, but I have seen some just starting to bloom in town.

I don't yet have enough points to ask anyone at Blotanical, so I'll have to wait on that.

Hmm. Name it myself--that's an idea. Bill? Betty? I'll have to think about that.
