Redstem Storksbill: The Seventh Flower of Spring!
A couple of days ago I decided to creep around the meadow next to our house to see if I could find new flowers for my Spring Flower Count and I found FOUR! I was moving along slowly when I first spotted a hyacinth-like stalk and bud cluster...but before I started setting up, I saw a quick movement and stopped to watch a hunting spider race across the ground, over grass, sticks, leaves, and right past...THIS! Holy cow, would you just LOOK at that fancy hair?! :D This tiny beauty is only about 1/2" tall! I would now like all of you to kick me in the shins because I didn't mark the spot where I found this flower, and I've been trying for the past two days to find it again so I can photograph it as it opens! *cries a river of tears* It will be dried up and brown by the time I find out where it was! Let that be a lesson to me, and OW, quit kicking! :D
