Wisconsin Native Wildflowers at Lakeshore State Park in Milwaukee Wisconsin on July 7, 2017

I stopped at Lakeshore State Park this morning in Milwaukee to see what was blooming there. The park has a nice variety of Wisconsin native wildflowers in beds throughout the park.  The park is getting near peak blooms as only a few species are on their way down with most in full bloom with yet more still to come. What a showcase today! It was mostly sunny with a few clouds but there was a steady breeze from the west where at times when the plants would just not sit still. Images were taken on July 7, 2017.
