A Walk in the Woods: Common Woodland Wildflowers

Common woodland wildflowers and other flora. So pretty! | Visit I Gotta Create!


This Spring has been absolutely Beautiful!

I've been mesmerized by all the little
wildflowers and other
flora and fauna I've seen,
so I thought I'd share a bit of the magic with you.


After listening to professional food forager
Tama Matsuoka Wong on Science Friday
(her website is http://meadowsandmore.com),
I got to wondering about
all the pretty little wildflowers
I've been seeing on my walks.

So, I took the photos below and went online
to identify these beauties.

The names are often as lovely as the flower:


Wood Violet. So pretty!  See common woodland wildflowers and other flora: Visit I Gotta Create!
