Frontenac Park: The Wildflowers



Dutchman's Breeches
(Dicentra Cucullaria)

Spring Beauty
(Claytonia Virginica)

My identifications of plants and wildflowers are tentative. I couldn't find anything in my guides that looked like the top two but I think the bottom two are correct. They're both listed as very early Spring wildflowers. It is still too early for Mushrooms and it is quite dry, which is not good for fungi.

The unidentified blue flowers at the top are stunning!

Wonderful photos, as usual.

Ooh, what lovelies! I agree with the bird woman--the flowers in that first photo are exceptionally beatiful (though of course all the flowers are beautiful)!

I've been meaning to get over to Frontenac Park for a good look around. Your series has me convinced I must do it soon!

Thank you all for visiting. I really enjoy being able to see the world through other's eyes, which is what blogging is all about. A trip to Frontenac always reminds me how little I really know about the world around me. So many things must go "unidentified," yet all these things are dependent on each other and I am dependent on them.
