More flowers!

Mom has even more flowers for today




 This is Milk Vetch.  True vetch looks like this but smells like grape Kool-Aid!

Wheat






 These two are Indian Blanket. There are a lot of these in the area. 



These two are Thistle. Some of these were 5 feet tall! 

 False Dandelion.  These are six inches or more tall unlike other Dandelion that is close to the ground.



 Indian Paint Brush

 This looks like Baby's Breath,  but I think it is Stick Tight.  It makes tiny burrs that are impossible to get out of pet hair!

  Not sure the name of this one.  It looks like a plant My Grandmother called Pink Eye Bush!

 Pepper Grass.  The  'leaves' look like pepper seeds.  It is an eatable plant and has a pepper taste.


Not sure what these two are. Small blue flowers that grow up the stem.

 Oats.There are a lot of these.  Someone had fun sowing their wild oats!

Another one I do not have a name for.

Believe it or not, there are more.  I will save some for tomorrow and then there are critters!
