I I feel for my city. This evening I’m taking comfort in these terrestrial emeralds, prehistoric-looking in the shade of their hornbeam companions. . . #nativeplants #jackinthepulpit #bloodroot #carpinuscaroliniana #ostryavirginiana #hornbeam #hophornbeam #musclewood #ironwood #springephemeral

4月の初めアメリカもコロナ禍の中 Stay at Home を守りつつ近所の公園に毎日散歩に行ってました。(一周4キロもある大きな公園。リスやウサギをよく見かけますが、早朝は野生のシカの家族が群れで歩いたりしてます。)まだまだ春が遠いアメリカ北東部の公園内は、人影まばら。雑木林の落ち葉が重なる地面から一面に頭を出して初めてみた可愛らしい花を発見。なかなか花の名前がわからなかったのですが•••カタクリの花だそうです。かつては、球根から片栗粉がとられた植物だそうでWikipedia で調べてみると非常に興味深いというか花を咲かせる為に種子から発芽して花を咲かせるまで8年から9年かかるとは•••何とか自宅の庭で育ててみたいな? ちなみに日本のカタクリと北米のカタクリは、カタクリ属に入りますが種類は、違うようです。 #カタクリ #かたくり #カタクリの花 #かたくりの花 #ユリ科カタクリ属 #堅香子 #堅香子の花 #多年草 #春の妖精 #スプリングエフェメラル #花 #自然に咲いた花 #雑木林 #erythronium #erythroniumamericanum #troutlily #yellowdogtoothviolet #erythroniumgrandiflorum #springephemeral

As spring shifts into summer, the flowers are changing, too. Trilliums are turning pink before wilting. New species boom every day. And the leaves of the true "ephemerals" like cut-leaved toothwort and Dutchman's Breeches are yellowing beautifully before melting away...oh and mosquitoes have replaced black flies as the main scourge of hikers... #springisnotcancelled #springephemeral

Late spring in the woods. Just two of many small wonders from yesterday’s ramble. 👭🏽 #ladyslipperorchid #springephemeral #wildflowers

as the canopy closes, it’s the last relevant time to catch up on some of the ephemerals backlogged in my photos, so here’s a favorite of this season: asarum canadense, wild ginger. a wonderfully sneaky and pubescent little bastard, with cordate leaves obscuring the small, bell shaped flowers borne at the base of the petioles // like many a good puce-colored bloom, the flowers revel in the art of using color to mimic decomposing flesh, attracting flies which may even take cover within the calyx on the cold days of early spring (talk about romance!) // the inter-species relationships don’t stop there for any #myrmecology enthusiasts: mature seeds have an elaiosome, an extra appendage that serves as a nutritious snack for foraging ants, who carry their finds back to the colony. once the elaiosome has been eaten, the seed is left in a trash heap to maybe do its thing in well dispersed peace. // these were just casually growing on the moist bank along jonathan’s @foxpawschool driveway and I might have been envious if I hadn’t been so dang excited to see em all. . . . . . . #springephemeral #fieldbotany #asarumcanadense #aristolochiaceae #northwoods #flora #naturalhistory #antsandplants #myrmecochory #lookcloser

Sanguinaria canadensis or Bloodroot _ Now at this time you may feel that I'm promoting my etsy shop too much (which I did update last night if you want to go check it out - link in bio), but I just wanted to say I will forever be posting those "non-likeable photos" to continue to help you guys identify things in the woods. _ This is one of those photos. The leaves of the native ephemeral Bloodroot. It is a basal leaf and comes up wrapped around the flower stem opening once the flower is done blooming. It is typically 3-5in across and is oval-oblicular in outline. It has 5-9 major lobes and small minuscule ones as well. This leaf will act as a groundcover throughtout the rest of the growing season. _ Captured: May 7th, 2020

LARGE-FLOWERED TRILLIUM 'Trillium grandiflorum' (detail) - Large-flowered Trillium offers an example of the importance of symbiotic balance in nature. This handsome member of the Lily family both relies on — and is threatened by — White-tailed Deer. Large-flowered Trillium depends on several creatures to survive. Bumblebees pollinate its flowers and later in the season, black berries appear, bearing seeds. As with violets and other spring species, ants collect and bury the seeds; they eat the fatty appendages called elaiosomes and discard the seeds in underground tunnels — in effect, planting them. But this process, called mymechochory or “ant farming,” spreads the seed only a short distance from the mother plant. Deer, on the other hand, may establish plants a mile from the mother, helping assure a greater range for the species. Deer love trillium, eating flowers, leaves and berries. In the process the seeds pass through the digestive system and are deposited, with fertilizer, often far from their source. If deer populations are “normal,” only the higher parts of the trillium tend to get eaten. However, in many parts of the eastern United States, the deer herd is so large that Large-flowered Trillium is being eaten to the ground, denying the rootstock the nutrition it needs and killing off colonies. --- #UNDERSTORY is a series of photographic plant portraits by #JackieBaileyLabovitz. Plant descriptions are excerpted from the book “UNDERSTORY” by Jackie Bailey Labovitz, w/ text by Jack Sanders and foreword by James P. Blair.

When harvested sustainably edible foods like the Spring Beauty can supplement a portion of your diet year after year. Eating a small amount of wild foods during the pandemic has helped limit my grocery store visits to once a month!

LITTLE SWEET BETSY 'Trillium cuneatum' (detail) - The flowers of Little Sweet Betsy bear a color that is found in only a handful of spring woodland ephemerals such as Wild Ginger, Red Trillium, Jack-in-the-Pulpit, and Skunk Cabbage. The maroon red is often accompanied by a distinctive scent that may not always please the human nose. That’s because these flowers are pretending to be carrion in an effort, literally, to draw flies. In early spring flies are scouring the forest floor for the freshly thawed remains of creatures that have died over the winter. The flower’s color is similar to dead meat, and the scents are often like those given off by carrion—mouth-watering to many kinds of flies. In the case of Sweet Betsy, visitors are typically blowflies or fruit flies. The former, being larger, may be more likely to provide pollen transportation services. However, sexual reproduction in Sweet Betsy is infrequent, and the plant also “clones” itself by underground division of its rootstock, resulting in long-lasting colonies. 'Trillium cuneatum', which favors upland woods, is also called Whip-poor-will Flower, Large Toadshade, Purple Toadshade, and Bloody Butcher. Sweet Betsy refers to its scent, which some liken to banana, and a corruption over the ages of the word “birth.” The plant was used in midwifery because it was said to relax the patient, and was consequently sometimes called Birthroot. Birthroot became Bethroot, then just Bet, and finally Betsy. Toadshade, a term used for many trilliums, refers to the large leaves that could, if a toad so wished, provide shade. In chilly early spring, however, any smart toad would be soaking up all the sun it could find. #UNDERSTORY is a series of photographic plant portraits by #JackieBaileyLabovitz.

A full season of spring ephemerals is coming to an end. Here’s a collection of macro shots, mostly to show off all the beautiful colors. (There are a few perennials and tree blossoms in here too.

Glancing outside my window at the mini slope shrouded in hideous English Ivy, something caught my eye. No way! Can it be? Is it? Yes!! It’s Red Trillium and it’s blooming right outside my room!!! What a lovely surprise and such a gift-especially since the trillium in the wetland area is long past it’s time. ————————————————— I also decided to enjoy the front door border gardens for a moment-Bleeding Heart, ferns, Wild Geranium and Daisy Fleabane are all in their full glory right now. —————————————————- #nativeplants #spring #flowers #thedailyjames #blooms #woodland #nature #naturephoto #nuts_about_nature #springephemeral #wildflowers #swamp #wetlands #backyard #nativegarden #backyardhabitat

The grid is growing. Have finished a few more #dailypaintings since I last posted. Each one is labeled (in pencil, on my wall) with exact time the photo was taken (that my painting is based on)during my daily walks. I’m trying to get all 24 hours, but my enthusiasm for the middle of the night has been dampened by the bear sitings. There is one very obvious night painting in the group. That one is 9:16 pm on the night of the new moon. It was very dark! #watercolorpainting #watercolor #grid #inmystudio #24hours #worksonpaper #inspiredbynature #springephemeral #monthofmay #mayflowers #landscape #wip

Spring may seem pretty elusive, but if you look really hard you can find the signs. A recent walk in Shepard’s Bush revealed a plethora of flora and fauna, including hundreds of red trilliums, trout lilies, bloodroot, round-lobed hepatica and a very large garter snake 🐍 🌺 #flowers #wildflowers #trillium #aprilshowersbringmayflowers #springflowers #aurora #yorkregion #mayshowersbringmayflowers🌷🌷🌷💚☔️ #spring #springwalk #roundlobedhepatica #redtrillium #troutlily #bloodroot #ephemeral #springephemeral #wildflowers #naturephotography #naturewalk #nature #flora #fauna #forest #sheppardsbushconservationarea
