Native wildflowers are the best finds on a springtime walk in the woods. They can be quite quite small and are often missed. But with patience and determination they are a joy to discover.
On one of my daily wanders in the woods and fields near my campsite I found wildflowers that only grow where the land is still native. Where it is as it always was; untouched by plow, developers or interlopers.
The Bloodroot flower is pure white but its name comes from its thick, blood red sap. Once used as a medicinal plant by native Americans, it also dyes clothes a brilliant deep red. It is a symbol of protective love and purification.
Yellow Trout Lily grows in colonies that are hundreds of years old. It is a symbol of abundance and a full, rich life.
The Spring Beauty wildflower always brings a smile. It is a charming white with pink stripes and grows all over the country from Pennsylvania and New York upwards to Montana and down into Texas. Spring Beauty is a symbol of strength and survival.
Happy New Month To Everyone!
