As promised, here are some photos of all the wildflowers & berries we saw. There were red & orange berries galore, as well as some darker purple ones - I'm not sure what any of them are.
A sign told us that there were some regionally rare soapberries in the area, but I don't think I would have been able to spot them. These fuzzy berries were the strangest - I'm pretty sure they're fragrant sumac.
The wildflowers were abundant & reminded me of home. Daisies, black-eyed susans, some wild roses:
These pinks ones I recognized - we have identical yellow ones at home, but I've only seen the pink in Hamilton & the Niagara region. The internet tells me they're called Crown Vetch.
I've seen these pretty purple wildflowers everywhere:
Apparently they're chicory (not to be confused with curly endive, also called chicory in the US) - the leaves & roots can be ground into a coffee substitute. They're also called cornflowers, but a typical cornflower is more blue with more petals.
Last but not least, some more pretty purple flowers - these remind me of bluebells:
Indeed, they're probably called creeping bellflowers - not the nicest weed, but pretty, eh?
