Wildflower Fest – Surprise

Trout Lillies are always a pleasant surprise. They come and go so quickly. There is an added surprise to if you wish to spot it. The flower takes its common name from its spotted leaves like a speckled trout, not from its yellow flower. Justice for the trout, but maybe not so fair for the Lilly.

Wildflower Fest – Spring Beauties

Spring Beauties form a forest floor carpet that invites spring into the woodlands. I’ve never been able to adequately capture the carpet effect, but I do hope you enjoy the delicate white-pinks of these close ups.

Wildflower Fest – Toothwort

Next in order for my wildflower-fest is the Toothwort. Named for its leaves perhaps. The first flowers to poke up through the leaf litter I consider to the delicates, small in stature, tender growth and fragile light flowers.

From the Wild Garden

The wild garden edges transitions into to its summer display. Mostly, my hikes have me taking photos in holes of the forest canopy, woodland edges and prairie islands. Each season established its own beauty and its own display of light. I’ve found that dappled sunshine and deep shadows will make photos of interest. Enjoy springs end and summers beginning.

Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord  – Acts 3:19

The law of the Lord is perfect, refreshing the soul. The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple.  – Psalm 19:7

A Floral Friday Now and Then

I was fortunate enough to find this Yarrow (I think) flowering last weekend. A nice find for Mid November. Below, six months ago, (or six months from now) I was learning how to use my new camera and was experimenting with this Cinquefoil. Enjoy the flowers and have a wonderful Friday. God Bless.1-DSC_00211-DSC_0001
