The Beauty of Spring

A couple of days ago, I wandered the woodland area of my neighbor’s rural land, looking for spring wildflowers. A great outing and many species of wildflowers were observed during this hike. In today’s post, I’m featuring a couple of images of one of our earliest woodland wildflowers, the Spring Beauty (Claytonia virginica).

The Spring Beauty rises about 5-inches above the woodland floor, when flowering. The flower petals are typically white (some may be pinkish) and have a pink veins through the flower. Native Americans ate the roots of the Spring Beauty.

Here are a couple of images I captured:
