Wild Kiss of Spring

Wildflower, Purple, Green, Flower, Wild
One of the great joys I have is roaming through the woods in early spring, searching for the season’s first blooms.  A few days ago, Sara and I took a hike in search of mushrooms and, of course, I had my camera.  There was little in bloom, but these little beauties were a delightful find.

Asiatic Dayflower

Asiatic Dayflower, Wildflower, flower, Blue, Tiny
I found this tiny, delicate Asiatic Dayflower on a woodland trail in Missouri. Though small, the bright blue color makes them easy to spot. When you do find them, take a moment to enjoy them because that particular bloom won’t be around long. The saying, “Here today, gone tomorrow,” applies to the Asiatic Dayflower. Thankfully, other’s will likely take their place throughout the summer.

According to Wikipedia….

The Asiatic Dayflower (commelina communis), is an herbaceous annual plant in the dayflower family. It gets its name because the blooms last for only one day.   It is common in disturbed sites and in moist soil. The flowers emerge from summer through fall and are distinctive with two relatively large blue petals and one very reduced white petal.

A Flair for the Dramatic


Flower, Yellow, Green, Petals, Curl, PetalThis wildflower seems to have a touch of graceful sophistication in its “wild.” A few of these beauties popped up on the edge of our property this summer. This bloom was the only one that demonstrated this particular flair for the dramatic.

Dutchman’s Breeches

Dutchman's Breeches, Dutchmans Breeches, Wildflower, Pantaloons
These tiny flowers are a favorite because of their unusual shape that earned them their fun name.

Dutchman’s Breeches is a unique wildflower that gets its name from the flowers that dangle down from thin stalks rising from the lush green plant. The flowers get their name from the blooms that resemble pantaloons hanging upside down and slightly inflated. They are early spring bloomers, arriving April to May, are approximately ¾ inch in length, and white to pinkish in color with a yellow line at the bottom of the flower that resemble a belt on the pantaloons.

Alien Presence

Spider, Wildflower, Yellow, Green, Crab Spider, Hidden
Doing its best to blend in with the simple beauty of this wildflower, a stealthy crab spider awaits an unsuspecting victim.

I love watching the viewers reaction to shots like this.  At first you see the beauty of the flower. An instant later, your brain registers the spider. How did you respond?

Cluster

Wildflower, Flower, Purple, Cluster

This delicate bloom is known as Crown Vetch or Axseed. It is a summertime wildflower classified as an herb in the legume family. (The same category as peas and beans.)

These flowers seem to be popular with bees and butterflies.  In the area I found this, bees were busy working the few flowers there.

On the downside, it is a serious invader of prairies and dunes and, apparently, it’s poisonous to horses.

Sun and Stars

Wildflower, Flower, Orange, Red, Petals

These are wildflowers found on our property.  They are in an area where I scattered a bunch of wildflower seeds last year.  We never saw any of these last year, so it was a pleasant surprise to see these big, bright blooms among the weeds this year. The white dandelion-like seeds in the center of the flower blew over from some nearby weeds.

Simple Spring

Wildflower, Flower, Yellow, Reflection, Light, Swamp

While walking through a swampy area of woods, I stumbled upon this simple, single flower. The bright area behind the flower is daylight reflecting off a wet area. I don’t know what kind of flower it was, but it was small. This bloom was only about the size of a thumbnail.
