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:
In upcoming blog posts, I will be publishing more woodland wildflowers that I captured during this week’s outing.
