It struck me the other day, that we are normally grabbed my the headlines, the top story, so to speak; so today I want to talk about the bottom line. I want to get down and dirty with you! It was all brought about by the understated blossoms on my Solomon's Seals. If you really weren't looking, they might totally elude you! But nevertheless, there they are: magnificent little bells, ringing only to the underplants!
Consider the May Apples, dainty white beauties with hearts of gold
smiling down on the understory
How about wild ginger (Asarum canadense)?
a pretty enough heart of a leaf (here adorned with pollen dust after a shower), but if you didn't know, you'd never get to see it's hairy-throated magenta blossom, which also hides underplant!
