Fostering curiosity in kids (and their parents) since 2011

Mostly Wordless Wednesday: April Flowers

First, an apology. Between tax time and birthday season and spring break, it’s been a while since I have had time to check in here at Caterpickles. I’m sorry to have neglected you curious folks. Rest assured I’ve been regularly pelted with questions in my absence and am further behind than ever. At this rate, I’ll still be answering questions my daughter asked in elementary school after she graduates from high school.

This past weekend, we found ourselves tooling around one of the outdoor malls in our new neighborhood. It being April in California, there were lots of flowers around, one of which I actually knew the name of. Can you guess which one?

Yeah. The pansy. The rest of them I had to look up. I think the purple one is a cineraria while the others are very pretty and very tall.

To make matters worse, I’m terrible at identifying flowers using Google searches and image results. So, if you know what you’re looking at, please leave a comment and tell me. I’d love to know what these are.

      Thanks! It’s been such a challenge sorting out a productive work schedule here. Much harder than in past moves. California is really distracting. I haven’t given up though.
