2) Lizard’s Tail
4) Still unidentified . . . the leaves resemble wild geranium.
5) Still unidentified
6) Still unidentified
7) Purple Vetch
8) Daisy Fleabane
9) And lastly, these are the flowers that set this whole thing in motion. I looked out my kitchen window, and there they were, on the roadside where they have NEVER sprung up before. Nor have they ever bloomed on this property in 13 years. They close at night, if that helps.
And as of this rewrite they are still blooming. And still unidentified. UPDATE: April 27th, 2009, at least four of my wonderful readers have said this must be “Christ in the cradle” plants, so thank you all very much for solving the mystery that started this whole thing! I took a walk “out back” for the first time since the Ike flood, and I found several more “strange” flowers growing!!!!! Maybe another day, huh? Thanks, gals!
Thank you all for playing and trying so hard.
