Native wildflower edition. Early May is peak native wildflower time 'round these parts. The only thing missing from this all-star line-up is the native Lady Slipper Orchid - those will be out a little later in the month, the real MVPs of woodland beauties. I mean, hello. They're orchids. That grow in the woods. In New England.
Jack-in-the-Pulpit (I let it get pretty wilted, sorry buddy!)
Trillium (I would normally never cut this many, as Trillium plants can take years to recover from having their flowers picked, but I found a mega stash of these pretties, so I went a little hog-wild.)
