Autumn Wildflowers

Along the edge of the woods, we have so many lovely wildflowers! Let me know which is your favorite. My favorite is #3.




These are called button flowers. They are yellow flowers that dry out and turn into spiky “buttons.” πŸ™‚




Blue flowers seem so rare, but these are prolific along the woods line.


These are pokeberries. Their stems are my favorite color, but the plants are toxic!










This one framed itself perfectly!


These are so incredibly tiny! God is an amazing Designer.




I looked up and saw this vine sticking out over my head. It struck me as funny. πŸ™‚

Have a restful, worshipful Sunday!

  1. I haven’t seen flower buttons before! So amazing! ❀

    I'm familiar with pokeberries. We have them growing everywhere. I remember once when I was a kid, I used the juice out of those as paint and painted my face like warpaint. πŸ˜‚ I didn't know they were poisonous, but I didn't get sick. My parents weren't happy with me though. (The stain lasted almost a week.)

    Those yellow ones are pretty – reminds me of some that grow near my grandma's lake.

    I've seen some purple ones around here that are similar to those blue ones. I really love the deep blue in yours!

    Yes, He is an amazing designer!! ❀ Never ceases to amaze me to see the variety in His creation. πŸ™‚

        Oh my! πŸ₯΄ Glad you threw them out. They are pretty. It’s too bad they are poisonous.

        I’ve heard that poke weed (which I assume would be the leaves of a poke berry plant) is edible if cooked a certain way. I’m not going to try it though. πŸ˜‚

  2. Did you know that the young leaves of pokeweed are edible *IF* you boil them, toss out the water, and boil them a second time in fresh water? Boiling only once or keeping the same water will make you sick – as will the berries. It’s often called “Poke Salat.” Who knows why!

    To me, it always begs the question: Who ate the boiled leaves of the pokeweed, got sick, and thought, “Hey, why don’t I try again but boil them twice this time?”

    Te berries also make a very lovely dye for cloth. πŸ˜‰
