As I got more involved in photographing and identifying the wildflowers of Lewis County, I began to entertain the idea of trying to find every wildflower that grows on our sixty acres of land. Luckily, I soon realized that this would be ridiculous (yes, there are times when I'm struck by sudden bouts of sanity). I have finally learned that there is a limit to the number of major activities that I can divide my time into (yay, me!), and have realized, in addition, that I have to prioritize. I have a full time job as a teacher, and another full time job as an artist. I am also working on building a log house from- well, logs; what I mean is, it's not a kit. Then throw in a few details like caring for the house and yard, my dogs, and...well, life stuff. So, no big wildflower project, but I will continue to share with you the flowers I meet by chance.
Queen Anne's Lace (Daucus carota)
Pokeweed (Phytolacca americana)
Tall Bellflower (Campanula americana)
Field Milkwort (Polygala sanguinea)
