Spiderwort … Love Those Blues! (Repost)

(Originally posted May 2010)

A couple of mornings ago, I visited my new-found prairie to see what wildflowers were blooming. As soon as I entered the meadow area, I was greeted with several really nice stands of several wildflower species! In this post, I will highlight the Spiderwort (Tradescantia ohiensis) plant. I was surprised at the number of Spiderwort plants that were in bloom. When I first discovered this area, about a month ago, there were a few Spiderworts blooming, but have since faded. Currently, there are Spiderwort plants blooming all over the meadow!

Here’s what a typical Spiderwort plant looks like:

This photo was taken just a bit after sunrise and dew was still very heavy. We had some heavy rains the night before and the humidity was atrocious this morning. But the forecast was for some heavy fog, so I was hoping for some fog over the prairie, but this land is located on high ground, so none was seen. But it didn’t take long for me to get all wet. And when I left, I could squeeze water out of my pant legs!

I also took a lot of macro images with the wildflowers. Here are a few of my favorites:

 

 

 

In a few days, I will feature some of the other wildflower plants that are now blooming at this location.
