Biking around the neighborhood

My girlfriend Beth and I took our new bikes out for an initial spin last evening. We biked around our suburban hood for 45 minutes or so. Beth has a fascination with wildflowers and she's wearing a hole in our Newcomb's with her enthusiasm. I love it. Along our drive through suburbia, we did manage to find a few spring wildflowers. We located some lovely shades of purple in Ground Ivy, Common Blue Violet, and Henbit.

From my research, it looks like Henbit and Ground Ivy are considered weeds for the most part. One man's weed is another man's wildflower I guess.
