we have a nice patch of jack-in-the-pulpits
in our woods along our path.

a jack-in-the-pulpit pushing up from its winter resting place

some flowers have deep purple markings inside. these are the seed making flowers. the pale green flowers only produce pollen which the insects carry to the other flowers. in the fall a spike of scarlet seeds will form. i have seen this before, not knowing what it was. i will be looking for them come october.

everyday gift: another wildflower for my nature almanac :o)

I am glad to know what that flower looks like now having heard that frequently of late.
