Jack-in-the-Pulpit 2


Today I found their secret Red Wing Bay lair. Had to take a couple more photos because they are so photogenic. Arum family. Separate male and female plants, females ones larger, pollinated by flies.

The air was full of birdsongs — I was thinking, if the bird walk man were there he would be reading them like a story, but to me… it was like looking at a page of a foreign language that I don’t speak… beautiful but I couldn’t read it. Also when we came out of the woods onto the grassy trail, we scared a big wild turkey who had been ambling along at his leisure.

  1. Just the thought of walking in the woods looking for the newest additions to the wildflower landscape is such a gentle way to greet the day. The photographs are beautiful and especially nice interspersed with some of those bonus photos that show the larger landscape for context. And I especially like it when you take the time to comment about what you saw in the wildflower world (like turkeys, for example) on that morning.
