Favorite Great Smoky Mountain National Park
WILD flower discovery and identification.
With my sister-in-law as guide,
I identify Bishop's cap
and Jack in the Pulpit...
and forget as many as I remember!
Dog hobble (below)
...and something resembling wild phlox (below) but with fewer "petals"
and those resembling a heart shape stump even her.
...and I believe I took the one below for identification purposes
when we consulted the wildflower book later at home.
Lots of white, some pale lavender, and one or two burgandy trillium.
Trails full of beauty.
Such is life on the "WILD SIDE".
