Day 80

A new state; a new flower

June 14th, 2010


  1. Beautiful flower. I really like the yellow butter cup look of them. They look like some king of Marigold to me by the stems but the flowers don’t look like it. What do you say MOM? What are they?

  2. Jeff says:

    Nice flowers….SUPER nice picture.

  3. Jeff says:

    Are these Ice Flowers? Probably not….just a guess though. Look a bit “succulent” on the stems and leaves.

  4. Karen Too says:

    Where’s Mom to identify the flowers for us? I was also thinking some type of buttercup. Beautiful.

  5. katzien says:

    All I’m thinking is “what is it, and can I grow it in Austin??” Very pretty!

  6. Jon says:

    I think they’re Yellow Buttercups.

  7. Carol says:

    They are called pontentilla and they are EVERYWHERE in Fargo. They must be easy to grow and are obviously hardy to make it in this part of the country.

    • Mom says:

      Carol is right ……. great plants for the northern plains. They would melt in Virginia …..high of 97 today.

    I’ve just discovered your site, thanks so much for sharing your journey. It is the bright spot in my day. In a stressful world, with a pressure cooker job, it is wonderful to check in and dream.

  9. Sue says:

    When you don’t know what they are called they are labeled MDYF (more damn yellow flowers)!

  10. Candice In Alabama says:

    Beautiful flowers! Thanks Matt for sharing the ND flora!

  11. Roe says:

    Potentilla is exactly right, many variations on the yellow. Butterflies love them and they are great as a stand alone!
