  1. Wow, what a nice selection of natives. State parks are the best.

    1. Yes, they are. :) This particular SP is underappreciated; it offers so many ecosystems to enjoy--prairies, woodlands, lakeshore, camping, hiking, and so much more.

    1. Thanks, Carla. I love the woods, the prairies, the lakes...all of it, in every season! (Except in February. ;-) )

    1. The Wild Geraniums are really quite spectacular this year! And the Shooting Stars are quite plentiful, too. :)

  7. Well well well, you got ahead of me. I have been walking the nature trails this week at Eagle Heights of the UW housing area. Living almost next door to you while my spouse goes for another Masters. Will be posting some of the same flowers you did here. Love this place!

  8. Great shots. Happy to see P. virginiana. Mine has finished blooming but looks like it will have hardly any fruit. Maybe will have to wait another year or two for that.

    1. Thanks, Jason. I don't think my Chokecherry here at home had any blooms this year...weird. But it's nice to see them at the state park.

    1. Thank you. :) These plants were at the state park. I tried Shooting Stars in my garden from seed planted last fall, but they haven't come up. Maybe next year?

    1. Yes, true. :) They have to be really tough in our climate, though. ;-)

    1. Yes, the season of growth is so special. I envy your climate; although I think I would miss having just a touch of snow. ;-)

  13. Guess what!
    Out of the corner of my eye, and as I took a breath,
    Jack in the Pulpit you sent me years ago decided
    to like Michigan weather. A bit frazzled but I am sure
    it is him! Crazzzzy fun to see it. I will try for a picture,
    although the beautiful part was quite tattered.
