A fantastic image Scilla! Excellent!
That is such an interesting photo. What exactly is it?
It is a May Apple, just emerging, with its leaves not yet unfurled.
Nicely captured–mine are not close to that stage. They are such a treat in spring.
They create such a lovely canopy for small frogs and such.
Oh, you’re so right.
may apple? I am none the wiser !
A woodland wildflower…it has 5 leaves in an umbrella fashion with one flower that opens beneath the canopy on the stem and turns into a little green apple when mature. This one actually will have opened up to two “umbrellas”, with the flower bud in the middle (a common variation). Check it out on Wikipedia!
