February 27, 2012 -- speedwell and hairy bittercress

This is a tiny little crock of spring weeds. The whole thing isn't but about 4 inches wide. In the little crock are speedwell (blue flowers) and hairy bittercress (white flowers). Both are prolific spring weeds that are really quite pretty (hairy bittercress has lacy leaves, and speedwell has four-petaled pale blue flowers with darker blue stripes). It was sort of fun spending part of the day pulling these out and part looking for the best specimens I could find to use in an arrangement! Under the arrangement is a piece of bark covered with moss that I pulled off a cedar log yesterday.
