An early morning walk
Took me along the dew-damp ditch
Past barbwire and sleepy cows.
Stooped to see the flowers
Pink and blue
Discover dandelion seeds
Among the spider silk and tiny hairs.
Common dandelion Taraxacum officinale
Tall lungwort Mertenisa paniculata
Not many flowers in bloom yet, besides dandelions and wild strawberries.
I was delighted to spot these little rain-bedecked blossoms on the edge of the woods.
Bright blue flowers on a drooping stem.
Depending on where you live, you might know this plant as northern bells, chiming bells or tall lungwort.
