First Wildflower

This is the last week in Elizabeth Joy's Wildflowers in Winter event. It's been fun to complete the tasks she's assigned during the last eight weeks. I've participated weekly, but have had a very difficult time finding a post for the final week. We are supposed to be posting a picture of the first wildflower we've found this spring. So far, I have found none in my locale. The daffodils, snowdrops, crocus, primroses, and apricot trees are blooming. . .but I haven't seen a wild flower. So I am going to cheat just a tiny bit. I did find a flower recently in Seattle. It was right downtown, growing in a crack between a concrete parking lot and a brick building. It was thriving! I believe this is a Shepard's Purse, although I am not sure.

Thank you, Elizabeth Joy, for creating a project that was fun and interesting for us all! I had a great time!
