Now that we are deep into spring–and in the midst of a wet spell, at that–the forests are lush, green, and almost tropical feeling.
For the first post of May, I give you Mayapples, as seen on the banks of the creek behind my parents’ house.
Since childhood I’ve thought these were delightful plants, with their pretty green umbrella leaves,
and a beautiful white blossom surprise underneath.
I’ve read that the resulting fruit is edible and sweet, although I haven’t tried one yet. Have you?
