Bob-Lo Wild Flowers
Stange plant.

Everywhere, but fading with the season.

Note the claw like leaves that give it another name of Five fingers.

These are a common wetland flower on BBI and one with really nice petals.  The inch worm is holding on to the petal at one end of it's body only pretending to be a stick.

Much better picture then the previous picture, but not too sure it is exactly the same variety.  These are not as compact and have leaves.  The other flower had scant leaves near the ground and was very compact.  I have changed the name from Hooded to Nodding, 2/17/11.

Not as common on BBI as the linear-leafed ones.

More common on BBI then the round leave kind.

Mint family.  Grows in the same habitat as Kalm's Lobelia, wet shores.

Grows on the wet shore everywhere on BBI.

This is not a native but an escape from some gardens in the past.  You wonder how it could end up on BBI.  Very large rose flowers and the rose hips are about the size of a golf ball.
9/26, I have changed the name from wrinkled to sweetbrier per Ellen Weatherbee.  2/17/11 changed the name back to wrinkled.

Hard to see but they spiral counterclock-wise looking down from above.  They grow in very wet places. Changed name to Nodding 2/17/11.

Found in Sand Bay in a marshy area.

The leaves and stem are adherent and tangling.  It uses the plants around it to help stand up.  It feels like velcro.  The flowers are about 1/2 inch wide.  The petals have lines that add to the beauty of this nice flower.  It only grows where you might get your feet wet.

I miss-identified this as Hound's-tongue last August.  It is actually an orchid and has spread all over BBI.

Smells so Good.

The flowers have five petals.  The stems are "tacky".  After it goes to seed, it has red seed pods at the end of the stem.

This is at what is now called Moon Bay.

Right on the edge of the county Road.

Many found on south shore near Pointe Aux Pins.  Any in your area?
