    Default Flowers

    Two of the pics are of my Snowball bush, I don't know if the bees work it or not but it sure is pretty. The other 2 are growing wild here everywhere right now. The one looks like a daisy but I'm no horticulturist, and the other I have no idea.
    So what are they? I am also not a photographer so I hope the pics are good enough to tell.

    I forgot to add the link...here it is. I also added a pic of the blackberries starting to bloom and one of a blacksnake I almost stepped on. Blacksnake or not, it scared the *!~! outta me at first.

    The first yellow flower is creeping buttercup (Ranunculus repens).

    Ranunculus is latin for 'little frog' because it groes in moist areas. repens means creeping.

    The daisy one is Groundsel (Senecio vulgaris). It is in the daisy family.

    Senecio is latin for 'old man' refering to the white hairs on the leaves and stem. vulgaris means 'common'.

    You know your flowers Walliebee

    I recognized the buttercup, but here in Maine they don't creep.

    Nice snake.
