Rick and I wanted to show our friends the hard to spot wildflower, the Fetid Adder's Tongue. Worst. Name. Ever. It is also called Slinkpod, almost as bad a name. Its scientific name is Scoliopus bigelovii.
Here we all are searching for the tiny orchid-like wildflower. Huckleberry, our golden retriever, is assisting in the hunt.
Rick was the one who spotted it. It was only about two inches high. You can see the two distinctive mottled leaves on the forest floor.
Trilliums and Milkmaids are also blooming now. We are having warm, sunny weather, which we are able to enjoy because there is a lot of rain in our forecast!
Thanks to C'Anna Bergman-Hill for allowing me to share her photos with you here.
