Yesterday I spent time with other wildflower nuts in the woods. We plucked a few where there were many, and rescued some from kudzu, Japanese honeysuckle, and men with bulldozers.
I came across this plant that I was not familiar with. I believe it may be a spider lily, Hymenocallis caroliniana.
Saw this guy. Eastern Box Turtle, Terrapene carolina.
Saw a couple of groundhog dens in the kudzu but didn't photograph them, as I was in danger of being left behind and it was too sunny anyway.
When we were done we appreciated Dan's beautiful garden.
OK we were just nosy.
Inside a foxglove (Digitalis purpurea) there are secret messages to bumblebees.
An unusual dogwood.
Sweet Williams (Dianthus).
Another Clematis. Most people around here seem to say it with the accent on the first syllable, but to me it sounds better on the second.
