Yard — a word worth a 1000 pictures (#55-64)

10 days have passed since I took note of what wild flowers were on the lot. That's more than enough time for a whole new set of flowers that prefer the middle of June to early June. Today's post is dedicated to them.

Picture #55: Small clumps of many purple flowers. They grow on a vine.

Picture #56: Tiny purple flowers that almost look like miniature pitcher plant flowers.

Picture #57: Intense lemon-lime green flowers.

Picture #58: Johnny Jump Ups.

Picture #59: Forget-me-nots still in full bloom.

Picture #60: Buttercups.

Picture #61: Dandelion in full bloom with Dandelion in closed state (left).

Picture #62: Tiny white flowers which seem to have double petals (5 petals which look like 10).

Picture #63: Clover.

Picture #64: Wild Strawberry flowers with fruit beginning to form.

Your top one, with the pretty purple flowers, is called Purple Vetch, or Cow Vetch (also Cow Pea). And the one with the tiny white flowers looks like a chickweed of some kind. The 2nd one I don't know, either, with the pitcher-like petals - maybe speedwell or possibly Blue Toadflax but I would say it looks more like a speedwell to me. :) Nice photos!
