On Today’s Walk: Wildflower Challenge Complete
The goal is to find and identify ten varieties of flowers…
My son accompanied me on today’s walk. We’d just received a good amount of rain, so we didn’t seek out any trails, but simply stuck to ambling about the neighborhood. I was able to hear how his work is going and also find enough flowers in bloom to complete the iNaturalist Wildflower Challenge on the Seek app.
The goal is to find and identify ten varieties of flowers, and I had already done seven before setting out. On our stroll, I found three more.
I live in Missouri, a more beautiful place than many realize. I love writing, reading, walking, bicycling, and making lists. I’ve written poetry since I was seven. A few years ago I branched out into short fiction and memoir pieces. I also perpetually have a novel in progress. My brain pursues ideas at a brisk pace, wandering all over the map. This blog represents one of my efforts to keep up with it.

That spurge is pretty.
Yes, it is!
We have two different kinds of spurge here Euphorbia Serrata and another Euphorbia I can’t remember the name of but has black flower cups and looks super space age!

Cool! I did a quick image search to see if I could find the ones you mentioned and came up with a whole spate of cool photos.
