I went out for a very colorful ride on the east half of the Fred Meijer M-6 Trail the morning of July 4. Flowers and weeds are blooming.

It's just as colorful on the west side of the trail, but these photos are all east of Division Ave.

Weeds and wildflowers are identified separately, but it's a blurry line for many. For me, if it's in my lawn it's a weed. If it's along the trail, I'm happy to consider it a wildflower.

In between dodging a handful of suicidal squirrels, I stopped along the trail to take a few photos.
