Spring Wildflowers

As I walked around our cabin I found a couple of common spring flowers that needed a closer look.

The Wild Strawberries (Fragaria vesca) are starting to bloom.

Soon these small flowers will produce a very tasty berry.

Many farm fields are starting to take on a yellow tint from the blooming Winter Cress (Barbarea vulgaris), a member of the Mustard Family (Brassicaceae).

The winter cress bloom is made up of many small, 4-petal flowers. A close up view of the small flowers.
