Woodland Orchids and Wildflowers
Laura and I went on the hunt for Helleborine Orchid and Coralroot Orchid. We had no luck with the latter but the Helleborine Orchid is close to blooming, but is tricky to photograph.
We also discovered a new to us woodland wildflower, the Tall Hairy Agrimony. It's tall and the stalk is hairy so we ruled out Woodland Agrimony but we stand to be corrected.
Another highlight was fine examples of Indian Pipe, a chlorophyll free plant. We often see them in groups in August.
The first two photos are from trips of previous years.
Tall Hairy Agrimony
This example was blooming beside the trail but I will have to wait for a cloudy day to bring out the details of the flower. The bright sunlight washed out the flower.
