In a sign that I am bringing my partner over to the dark side of wildflower spotting, while wandering around his company’s grounds during his lunch break, he’d spotted enough different wildflowers that we made a stop there while driving around last Saturday.

The Veronica were a happy surprise. I’d never noticed those before, and then found some in my lawn when we got home. Goes to show you, you can find wildflowers anywhere.
