Newbie on the Hill

Today’s post features a new wildflower find for me … the Pale Corydalis. During my last trip to Ha Ha Tonka State Park (in the Missouri Ozarks), I found this one clump of nice, yellow wildflowers that were growing along a woodland trail, just below some rock bluffs. I wasn’t sure what I had found until I got home and checked some of my resource books.

Here are a couple of macro images I captured:

An unusual and unexpected find. I have walked past this spot several times, and over the past few years, yet this is the only cluster I’ve ever found. I’ll be looking for these newbies on future visits on this woodland trail.
