|Dandelion (039 - 2012)|
One of the more ubiquitous wildflowers out here is the dandelion. In fact, it's so ubiquitous, it's considered a weed. But let's face it, all a weed is is a wild plant that's growing somewhere you don't want it. I love that these are growing inside an old tree stump.
|Celandine Poppy (040 - 2012)|
I'm getting better with the flowers. This is a Celandine Poppy. I find it interesting because I'm not used to seeing flowers with only four petals. It's the same reasons I find the Trilliums interesting. They have three.
He actually moved from tree to tree quite a bit as another photographer and I tracked him, but he stayed pretty well in view despite all that moving.
|Bellwort (041 - 2012)|
For some reason I got it in my head that I'd already blogged these at some point, but if I did, I can't find it now. So I'm guessing I didn't.
These are bellwort. An interesting little yellow flower that hangs upside down.
No actual species here, I'm not even sure what the tree is, but I love the evidence of beavers here. I'm also slightly amazed that the tree hasn't fallen yet.
So that's Fullersburg! I want to go back out there in May when migration is more thoroughly underway. It was a nice park with a lot to see and not an insane amount of people to compete with.
