Hot Pink

Today’s post features another woodland glade wildflower that I saw on my hikes through Johnson’s Shut-Ins State Park (in the Missouri Ozarks).

The Fire Pink wildflowers are always great to see, although I only saw a single clump of them during my glade hikes. As spring is beginning to show leaves on trees/plants, and some flora begin showing some color, it is always a delight to see the fiery red color of the Fire Pinks! Here are a couple of images I captured on this hike:

On my previous trip to Johnson’s Shut-Ins, I was fortunate to have several clumps of these flowering in my campsite … but not this time.

Coming up … another “wildflower lifer” I found and just identified on my trip.
