Spring wildflowers

My recent hikes have been all about the wildflowers. The Indiana woods - even abused places like Murray Forest - are full of tiny, beautiful flowers. To find them, though, you must look carefully and walk slowly, so slowly that you hear your boots squeak. It also helps to have an app like Seek for plant identification.

I’m not much of a photographer but here are some pictures from the past week.

Common blue violet

Rue anemone

Trout lily

Virginia spring beauty

Downy yellow violet

Cut-leaved toothwort


Blue phlox

Celandine poppy

Star chickweed

Bonus (since it’s a tree, not a flower): Eastern redbud, which fairly glows when in bloom
