Fernbank Wild Flowers


Good morning,

Today's images were taken at Fernbank Park on the banks of the Ohio River West of Cincinnati.

It was a gloriously beautiful day to take pictures.  I don't know the names of all of these flowers either dried or fresh, but that doesn't mean I enjoy them any less.  I do recognize that dandelion.  ;)

 These flowers are in the narrow strip of land between the mowed land of the park and the Ohio River.

 Little white butterflies were everywhere.
 What a beautiful place to wander, think, and take pictures.
 Enjoy.

All the best,
Lois

Lois, I think you and I, or rather Ohio and WV share a lot of the same flowers. I too recognize them, but haven't a clue as to what they are!! Oh! But they are so pretty and brighten up the landscape!! ...debbie
