I rescued the hillside from my husband and the lawnmower. I wanted to get a picture of these flowers that grow among the grass and creeping phlox, but they just blended in.
Here's the best close-up shot I could get.
After doing some research, I found that these are probably Pink Pussytoes or Pink Everlasting Scientific Name: Antennaria rosea Family: Asteraceae (More information here.)
My Mom always called these Pussy Feet, but I really wasn't sure. I am still not sure whether they will open up or change color any more. They are usually mowed-over by now. There is a flower called Pussy Foot, but it's slightly different and low to the ground. These are stalky with 6 -1 0" stems.
They do look like cat's toes, don't they?
