Wordless Wednesday–Earth Week Edition

Afer the catastrophic storm we had last October, I’ve been looking for these little wildflowers all season.  I was so pleased to finally find them again.  As is obvious, they grow in a fairly abandoned place, and a lot of brush came down and more was chipped into piles there.

These are wood anemone, a relative of the cultivated types of anemones that we grow in our gardens.  But unlike those, these are spring ephemerals, meaning they appear for a few weeks in the early spring and then go dormant.  Here’s a close-up of the lovely flower. It’s breathtaking among the forest floor leaf litter!

    I do not leave a ton of responses, however i did a few searching and wound up here Wordless Wednesday-Earth Week Edition | Gardendaze’s Blog. And I actually do have a few questions for you if it’s allright.
    Could it be simply me or does it look as if like a few of the responses
    come across like coming from brain dead people? :
    -P And, if you are posting at other social sites, I’d like to follow anything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list of all of your shared pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

      Unless someone’s post is actually vicious, I don’t really comment on the nature of their content. If it’s vicious, I mark it as spam and it doesn’t make the blog.

      I only post on twitter. You can find me there as @KarlaDalley.

      Thanks so much for reading and commenting.
