Today I will catch up some with the wildflowers.
The pretty little Wood Anemone or Anemone quinquefolia has a single white flower..it is a plant that is native to Minnesota and is also called Mayflower. These are found quite readily in our woods.
One of my favorite colors..yellow..the Common Dandelion or Taraxacum officinale. It is actually many tiny flowers clustered together..beauty is in the eye of the beholder on this one. We have many of these non native plants in our yard..
The last one is called Scrambled Eggs. I had never seen it before. I searched through a bunch of my books, I cruised the net and finally I put a photo up on the Minnesota Wildflowers Facebook site and it was identified. Corydalis aurea or Golden Corydalis or Scrambled Eggs. I found this plant last week when we were planting trees.
I like finding new plants, but they haunt me until I get them identified and named and can make some sense of them. Yes, it may be an obsession..there may be a name for it..obsessive compulsive wildflower disorder or OCWD :)
Now for a little fun..what kind of flower is hidden ..being a shy sort of flower..but native to Minnesota and one of my favorites? It is hidden by one of its petals..what do you think it is..I will reveal it on Thursday!
