Outdoor Wednesday

Time is truly fleeting by.  Here it is Outdoor Wednesday with Susan.  She shares some really interesting outdoor scenes at http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com

This is a Trout Lily. In this area, a few grow. It is called the Trout Lily Walk.  Various groups go and stroll through the area. It gets this name as the leaves look like the markings on trout fish. It only has one flower at the top of the stalk. Flower is yellow on the inside. They are pollinated by ants and takes seven years to make a mature plant.

I have seen these delicate flowers but I never knew what they were called. Lovely.

So delicate and how interesting about the ants.

I don't think we have those flowers either. My eyesight is not the best I could have overlooked it. When I visited the forest in Belize the ants made long, very wide pathways through the forest. We were told they only traveled far out in the night time. They are amazing creatures.

Sending you hugs and blessings.

Hello, LV,
I am visiting you through my dear blog friend Mariette.
"Driving Miss Daisy" is also my lifelong favorite film. I am so glad to have found a fan of that film.
I really like Miss Daisy played by Jessica Tandy. Your lily is so pretty.
Greeting from Japan.
