Last week I found some blue native Irises, this week I found some red ones. Pretty aren’t they?

This is a Canadian Thistle. It’s pretty but you don’t want it in your yard or it will take over, it’s very invasive.

Often you see them in big patches like this.

This patch is growing on both sides of the road for over a mile! On the left side of the road you can also see some Hairy Vetch.

This is a close-up of the Vetch. The beauty of nature is all around you if you just take the time to stop and look. More to come.
