This was probably the last week I'll see monkeyflower in bloom. I only found two or three plants still blooming.
|Allegheny Monkeyflower (Mimulus ringens)|
This was my first time finding pondweed in bloom. There are a number of similar species in the genus - I don't know which one this is.
|Pondweed (Potamogeton sp.)|
|Downy Rattlesnake-Plantain (Goodyera pubescens)|
I was so excited to find this pinesap, though I missed the flowering stage - it's in fruit now. You can tell because the flower heads start nodding downwards but turn upwards like this when they're pollinated. Last year I found the dried stems of flowers from a previous year near a corner of my property. I watched carefully for new stems there last year, but none appeared. I obviously wasn't watching closely enough this year since I missed flowering, but I'm so glad I found them!
|Pinesap (Monotropa hypopitys)|
Jack-in-the-pulpit is in fruit - it will turn a gorgeous bright red soon. See the dried remnant of the flower spathe attached to the fruit?
|Jack-in-the-Pulpit (Arisaema triphyllum)|
|Greater Purple Fringed Orchid (Platanthera grandiflora)|
