The roadsides are ablaze with wildflowers: miniature daisies, monkey flowers, red clover, the blues of wild chicory, tall grasses and towering Queen Anne's lace. There is also the frowned upon Purple loosestrife, an invasive species here, but nonetheless striking with tall magenta cones. Beautiful.
Put yourself in my bike sandals and enjoy this spinning wheel view of a segment along my commute. And no, that's not snow near the asphalt, but nature's carpet.
