2022 Feb 21 – First Flower

I saw my first local flower of 2022 in our lawn today. I was on my way to look at the bees and happened to see a couple flowers of creeping speedwell, or Veronica filiformis. This low-growing plant is well adapted to typical lawn care practices, so is considered by some to be a pesky weed. I celebrate it as a later winter flower that provides some early food for bees and other insects.

May you prosper and find honey.
