Wildflowers Monday – this and that

Maneuvering through heavy winds and rain we managed to take a few pictures, and most importantly, to collect seeds of Hepatica and Thalictrum thalictroides (Anemonella) this weekend (I am seriously thinking to start adding a ‘mosquito seed surcharge’ this year).

The smallest of the Mayflowers posing charmingly in front of a lichen covered tree trunk: Maianthemum canadense

Cypripediums glancing from beneath tickets:

Cypripedium parviflorum var. parviflorum

A ‘ghostly’ Arisaema triphyllum that I stumbled upon trying to take pictures of the Cypripediums. Such variation in A. triphyllum! Very teasing to do from seeds; many forms are lurking in their genes…

Few Thalictrum thalictroides seeds – find them in the Shop

And, Hepatica seeds – moist packing, here I came!
