Bob-Lo Wild Flowers
Snake Island area.

Not common on BBI.  Striped is the common one.

Small plant that grows in and near swamps.

This is a prettier and earlier blooming split-lip hempnettle then what I have seen in other parts of the island.  Usually they bloom much later.  Also, they usually have pink or white coloring.

At Moon Bay right near the county road where a new culvert was put in last summer, 2009.

Found on North side of the island.

There is a FEN near my home that has little islands in it.  On those islands grow huckleberry bushes.

These things grow attached to the roots of oak trees.

On the beach at Sand Bay and other places along the shore.

Very small flowers.  Called naked because there is no leaf on the flower stalk.  Others kinds do have a leaf or two on the stalk. Picture taken June 11, 2009.

The anthers are trapped under tension by pockets in the petals.  A bug lands on it and upsets that.  The anther is released and whacks the bug.  Pollen is transferred in that way.

Strange looking flower.  Found on the powerline at Pte. Aux Pins.

There are at least nine different speedwells in Michigan, and six on BBI, but you can tell if it is a speedwell if you note that one of the four petals is smaller then the other three.
This one is classed as a Eurasian weed.

These have a double flower that turns into this fused together double berry.

This is probably a starry false Solomon-seal.  These usually grow in the sand, but this big one was in the hardwoods on Round Island.  The false Solomon-seals have the flowers in terminal clusters.  The true Solomon-seal has one flower per leaf axil hanging down..

The common wild rose of Bois Blanc.  It has double serrate leaves.
Rosa acicularis
Found in Bill & Angie Mitchell's yard at Sand Bay.

Found on Round Island.  You can't see the flowers until you look under the leaves.

This small violet grows in the wettest places.  Places where the cedar is stunted and black ash grows.  Sunlight makes it to the ground through the spare cover to allow this to grow.  Not listed as being on BBI, but it is.
Type violet in the picture name search and see six violets on BBI.

As the name says, it grows in bogs or fens.

There are 3 kinds on BBI, spotted, striped, and this one with an unspotted lip.  Corallorhiza trifida var. verna

These totally lack chlorophyll.
