May Wildflowers

Last month I shared a post called April Flowers Bring May Flowers? titled that way due to the lack of rain we experienced during what is typically a much wetter season here Somewhere-in-the-Middle-of-the-USA.  As it turns out, the flowers I captured during the month of May were just as lovely as those from April, although different varieties were in bloom.  And, we did get a tiny bit more rain!

Do you have a favorite below?

May Wildflower Photo #1.  I’m not sure what these are called, but they are all around Lake Lenexa right now.

May Wildflower Photo #2.  I think these are garden-variety clover.  Even so, they are so pretty, especially with a sky of puffy, white clouds in the background.

May Wildflower Photo #3.  I think these might be cornflowers.  I’m not sure, but I love their intense, blue color.

May Wildflower Photo #4.  I’m pretty sure these are daisies!

  1. The daisies for sure although they are all great!!

    • Thanks, Loony! I’m such a sucker for flowers, but I try to pace myself in my posts. I wish I had the same restraint for ducks and barns! 🙂

  2. I love the first one the most! These flowers grow back home as well, don’t know their English name though 🙂

    • Dear Perfect, what do you call them in your mother tongue? Maybe they’re not as different in English as we might think? 🙂

      • In Russian, we call them васильки (vasil’ki) or Vasiliy’s flowers 🙂


      • Hmmmmmm, yeah, Google wasn’t much help. When I tried to search on any related terms all I got in return were link to Russian artist Denisov Vasiliy and his flower paintings. I guess we won’t know until a flower expert who knows the English term replies.

  3. pretty! please dont make me to choose, i love them all 🙂
