Spring Photoblogging II

More flower photos from the spring. All of these photos were taken in various parts of the Don. I won't give exact locations because I know that there are people out there who would like to see these plant decorate their coffee table. The proper place for them is in their natural setting where they play an integral role in the local ecology.

Eastern Redbud (Cercis canadensis)

More of a bush then a wildflower, but it still produces brilliant reddish pink flowers in the spring.

Smooth Yellow Violet (Viola pennsylvanica)

Cutleaf Toothwort (Cardamine concatenata)

Virginia waterleaf (Hydrophyllum virginianum)

Wild Geranium (Geranium maculatum)

Yellow Lady's Slipper (Cypripedium parviflorum)

Don't see too many orchids growing in the Don, but I found these (beautiful!)

Nice photos. I haven't seen lady's slippers around here -- I'll have to look more carefully. Toothwort, huh? Good name!
