If you live in Minnesota the Showy Lady’s Slippers are in full bloom.
This is the bunch that Far Guy saved years ago at our old resort. He found them one day in June years ago coming up on both sides of a log. The group has gotten larger and larger. We stopped by for a few photos!
The Blue Flag Iris is in bloom near the Dead Beaver area.
The Smooth Solomon’s Seal is just finishing up.
The little blooms are hidden under the foliage..I practically had to lay on the ground for this photo. This plant is on the edge of our driveway. It is special..because it is the only one I know of in our area. They may be more deep in the woods..but I stay out of there because of the Poison Ivy.
Aldo Leopold wrote “ During every week from April to September there are, on the average, ten wild plants coming into first bloom. In June as many as a dozen species may burst their buds in a single day.”
I enjoy watching the native plants… waiting for the first blooms. After years and years of watching native plants they do not disappoint they always bloom with a week or ten days of when they did last year..Leopold calls them Prairie Birthdays. I guess that works for me:)
