Cool White Wildflowers

I found some very cool looking wildflowers the other day. They're growing all over the sides of the roads at Broken Kettle Grasslands. I would also share the name of the flowers with you, but I can't identify them. I've looked everywhere and found nothing.

I always admit that I'm not the best at identifying flowers, but these have me particularly stumped. I tried really hard this time. And I am sure these should be easier than this. In the back of my mind, I seem to remember seeing these somewhere before, but I just can't remember anything more.

Oh well. I still have lots of pictures of them to share with you because I think they look so cool. They looked even cooler while I was out there seeing them myself. That's always the best way, but the pictures are good too.

The flowers look kind of big at first. But on the second glance, you'll see that it's the leaves that look so fancy. The flowers are actually very small. They are tiny and white with five petals. It was these fancy leaves that attracted me to them.

These plants stood kind of tall. They were about one to two feet in height.

I liked this one with the bug on it. I took several pictures of this plant because of this bug.

Not exactly related to the flowers is that I like the routine I've fallen into. I'm able to kind of patrol the nature areas near me and report on the current changes. I'm really getting to observe the small details of the natural world around me.

This is what I was able to do back when I was living in Michigan. I felt like I was part of the natural world, and it seemed to welcome me when I would visit. I'm beginning to get that feeling back. Now if I can start to be able to coax deer to come right up to me again, I know I'm on to something. I'll talk to you later.


  1. ahhhh, enjoying the little things in life

  2. Very nice. I like the pic with the bug.

  3. Such a beautiful plant. The leaves are so unique and make it look like a green flower. Thanks for sharing.

    Glad you are finding yourself again as you see the details in nature as you once did.

  4. They are cool looking plants - I'm glad someone was able to identify them!

  5. Every detail of the Nature is beautiful.

  6. Oh, those are really pretty plants. I'm glad that someone had the name for us!

  7. Those are really pretty. I see Steve identified them for you too
