Mother’s Day Special: Woodland Wildflowers

Woodland wildflowers. In dappled sunlight on moist, fertile soils. As solitary plants or in clumps, patches and carpets; in every size, color and growth form imaginable; and with blooms that fade as quickly as they appear. The story of the spring ephemerals is told over and over again, the scenes observed each and every year in April and May. But, Mother Nature is the supreme story teller, and it never gets old.

In memory, and honor, of mothers around the globe.

  1. Beautiful. These photos bring back memories of my grandfather pointing out these plants during spring walks in the woods.

    • Well, I guess we are of like mind. I went back the next morning and did it all over again. Tried several different angles, dewdrops and all … but still chose another back-lit Red Trillium as my favorite. Thanks Gunta. 🙂
