My gift to myself on Mother's Day was a hike through the woods and nature was feeling the " Love ". I saw a tree with this heart shaped hole , although it was upside down , with a little rotating of the photo , you can see it's form. If you look below the hole , you can see what appears to look like another heart etched into the tree.
As I strolled on I found this vine with heart shaped leaves , I believe it is a wild potato-vine. I'll be watching for the blooms to see if I can make a positive i.d. soon.
Shadow went along with me on the hike , he enjoyed the stream and found an herb to enjoy himself. He's eating some grass that grows along the bank of the stream.
The Jack-in-the pulpits are blooming , I found several patches of them.
Shadow got a whiff of something and started digging in this spot , but he gave up and moved on quickly.
The Oregon grape has fruits that are ripening. You can read about this plant here , if you're interested ~ http://herbalspirits.blogspot.com/2010/03/oregon-grape-holly.html ~ .
I'm not sure what this plant is , plan to watch it and see if it blooms.
Does anyone else know what it is ?
False Solomon Seal
A beautiful Jack-in-the-Pulpit , this plant was in a sunny location and about knee high tall.
This is why it smells so delightful around here , the blackberries , honeysuckle and multiflora roses are blooming.
And remember this plant ..............................
Thanks to Flassie , the plant has been identified , it's a Carolina Geranium also known as Crane's Bill because of it's fruit.
This photo shows the Crane's Bill , Thanks Flassie !!
Hope Everyone had a Great Mother's Day !
