While on another woodland walk with Willie, I found several wildflowers blooming. I'm not good with wildflowers, nor do I have a wildflower book (don't know why, it's a well DUH!) on my part.

Didn't upload these to photobucket, so sorry for the multiple postings.

I think this is Trillium...Am I correct?

These are everywhere....we used to call them MayPops, not sure that's correct.

Thanks Barb....so I did have the trillium right - and I was close on the Maypop - LOL...so it's a mayapple.

I'll google wildflower pics and see, but kinda thought some of you might know the answers and make it easier Big Grin

edited to add: I took Barb's advice and did a google search.

The unknown is a spurge.......I found an Irish Spurge..leaf isn't quite right, but flower stamens look the same.

Pretty plants. We had may apples in Ill. when I lived up there. And violets all over the place, some white too!

I knew the first one and that's it!

Don't you just love finding volunteers when walking through the woods! I remember the first one I found years ago was blue spiderwort. I dug it up and put it in a pot. Now it has reseeded everywhere!
