Wednesday Wildflowers, Etc.


Went mushroom hunting last weekend and didn’t find a one. I did find a few wildflowers, mayapples and a jungle of old tree vines, or what we call grapevines, strong enough a big kid could swing on from tree to tree like Tarzan. (I wanted to, but decided against it. I was safer holding onto just the memory.)

I had no idea that tiny green insect was there until I downloaded the photo to my computer. I don’t know my wildflowers, so if anyone can identify them, comment away.

The mayapples are up early this year.

This vine forms an archway.

A tangled mess. Maybe George of the Jungle’s failed attempts?

A twisted grapevine.

Sorry, no sighting of Tarzan or George or any wild man for that matter. 😦

Update: The yellow wildflower is a Trout Lily. See comments below by Bonnie, Mark and Dezra. The blue blossoms are what I suspected – violets.
