I headed back out to the wheat field today with the intention of finding some wild roses. I know that they grow around a rock pile out there, and when I was there last week, I noticed that they were just barely starting to bloom. I figured if I gave them several more days, I’d be able to catch them in full bloom. It turns out that I should have not waited so long. They were either all done blooming already, or something had eaten the flowers.
My little excursion was not in vain, though, for I found a couple of things. First, my wheat is starting to head out. This is rather exciting. Second, I found some of my favourite purple wildflowers there that were still in full bloom. We have some in our backyard too, but these ones out in the middle of the field seem more wild to me. I have no idea what they are, but they smell really nice. If I would have had a knife, I would have brought some home with me.
