There is more to admire than cherry blossoms this time of year! Check out the flowering weeds! At the edge of a tiny park in Leonardtown, MD I was startled to discover Veronica (Speedwell) in full bloom, carpeting a large area with the most darling tiny flowers in endless shades of sky blue. A perfect bouquet for a fairy.
Veronica is the largest genus in the flowering plant family Plantaginaceae, with about 500 species; it was formerly classified in the family Scrophulariaceae. Common names include speedwell, bird’s eye, and gypsyweed. Wikipedia
I just can’t get over the blue veins!
Hardly looks like it’s weeping! This cherry is obviously sobbing!
The cherries are starting to weep pink tears! In a few days they will be ready to take on the bees!
