starflowers


Trientalis borealis

If you came to visit me today, and you took not the driveway, but instead the path that leads through the edge of the woods to my cabin, this is what you would see scattered on the forest floor.

These are gorgeous! No wonder you chose that for "Starflower's" name.

AGAIN! another type plant I've never seen! Gee, it would be so fun to explore your region! (I've just been in the West and the South)

Liz said...

I'm always amazed at the similarities between ME & MN. Starflower is in bloom here, too. Very cool.

Laura said...

Ah, that's one wildflower I fondly remember from points farther north. That and marsh marigold. Do you have fringed polygala (gaywings), too?

Beautiful pictures!

Beautiful! That's a new one for me!

What I like about them is they almost always have odd-numbered petals.

lene- happy anniversary, of us knowing each others' blogs!

Madcap- Yes, that is a special flower, and my daughter has earned the name. :)

pj- And I would love to explore the Southwest.

Liz- Even though you may be a bit further north, I think we are on the same flower schedule.

Laura- I don't think I know fringed polygalia. Of course, that does not mean it is not here...

Jennifer- Thanks for stopping by! And I really enjoy your blog too.

FC- One more reason why you have to come up to the north woods sometime!

Star flower is blooming here in NY also... I love the carpets of these blossoms. Just bought some from the Catskill Native Plant Nursery so I can have them nearer to the house.
Beautiful photos.

Happy Anniversary back, Deb. Thanks for the extra smile today. :)

Delightful and enchanting. I can see why you call your daughter Starflower.
