From Ferns to Wildflowers


Knowing your wildflowers can be tricky and very difficult for a novice.
However, using Newcomb's Wildflower Guide, it becomes a little easier and forces me to remember what I learned in Botany my freshman year at UConn!!



Since our property is smack dab in the middle of the woods, we are privy to all sorts of flora and fauna.












Each Spring, I look forward to the wide variety we get.

i recognize the jack-in-the-pulpit and the ferns. Are they fiddleheads? You can eat those.

That's a brilliant idea - I am no good to the names of flowers either! Some of the flower sprouts look like they're nodding, having the flower to arise a bit later ... so sweet!
Happy weekend to you, my friend :)

Let's see...I recognize the Jack-in-The-Pulpit, but that is all. I am so glad to see this book, and am going looking for it! I have two wildflower guides, and neither one seems to be that good. This may be IT!

I have a couple of wildflower guides for Ontario and they are handy to have. I think I recognize everything you shared and they're common here as well.

I have one unfortunate wildflower guide where you practically have to know the name, I think it is the Latin name, before you can look the flower up. But I have a good one too, so I use it.

except for the most common I've always been pretty bad at remembering names of flowers and other plants
