Mystery Flower in My Yard


CRAFT: Bloom
A few short weeks ago I posted about the beautiful wild flowers coming up all over the forest near my house.

One mystery flower intrigued me and some of the Craftzine readers, so I’ve been watching it closely and trying to take pictures as it grew and the buds opened. Sometimes i didn’t remember to take a photo until late afternoon, so some of the photos are dark, but the flowers are delicate and enchanting in any light.

But what the heck is it? I’m going with False Solomon’s Seal at this point, but this plant is way bigger than others I’ve seen around the forest with similar blossoms.
