A different kind of starflower update
























It seems a bit early for them!

I've never seen these. How pretty!

Cathy- The first time I saw one of these was in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area on the MN/Canada border. Now they bloom all over in my own woods; I just found this huge patch of them close to the new house.

you know the weather has my flowers all messed up. I have summer bloomers and spring bloomers all blooming at the same time.

Deb-is that really a starflower or are you using an alias name again?

Lynne said...

I've never seen starflowers before either. Where do they like to grow?

Deb said...

dragonfly183- It is really weird, and I guess it's not just Minnesota.

Larry- :) Trientalis borealis.

Lynne- I've seen them mostly in openings in coniferous woods. This patch was on the southern edge of a mature tamarack woods we have just between the new house and the creek. I found it while I was looking for the brown thrasher.
