Yesterday I ended up in one of those massive traffic jams
that brings everyone to a full stop for awhile.
It's irritating and annoying, but what can one do?
Basically, nothing but to enjoy the scenery.
So while I was stuck in place,
I rolled down my window and looked at--what else?--
the grasses and flowers in the median.
And there were many I hadn't noticed before
as I was zipping by in my car.
There was one particularly graceful long-stemmed grass
with feathery tops.
I've seen it a lot, but haven't discovered yet what it is.
And there was purple clover, one of my favorites:

And lots and lots of cheerful little buttercups:

And the tiny blue blossoms of speedwell hugged the ground:

And there was one more wildflower,
a mysterious imposter in fact.
I will describe it in tomorrow's blog.
