Bob-Lo Wild Flowers
There is a little of this near the old dock.  There is quite a bit near the cross right alongside the road.  It has normal size cherries.

The flat leaves are under water.  This bladderwort has a "horn" like the horned bladderwort, except instead of pointing down, it points horizontally.  Think flaccid and erection girls.  Not nearly as common here as the horned bladderwort.  It seems to come out earlier.  The bladders suck in little creatures in the water, making this a carnivorous plant.
There also should be a common bladderwort here, but it must be the least common.  I can't find it.

The seeds of this clover are black hence the the reason black is in the name.  Found on the power lines, especially at Sand Bay, where horse feed was brought from south of here, when this was a community with lots of horses.

This toothwort has three leaves, each leaf cut deep to form three lobes per leaf.  There is also a two-leaved toothwort on BBI.

Each leaf has 3 leaflets, total six leaflets.  There is a Three-leaved Toothwort also on BBI.

Tiny flowers with petal tips in-flexed.  The plant has double compound leaves and is quite hairy.  Fruit is barbed and will stick to socks.
Overlooked most of the time.  It grows in the hardwoods. There are four kinds in MI and two kinds on BBI.  This appears to be Osmorhiza claytonii.  Also called Clayton's Sweetroot.

There are two kinds on BBI.  This appears to be the wild strawberry.  The other kind is called Woodland Strawberry.

There are two kinds on BBI.  The leaves are three lobed.  Each lobe has a round tip or a somewhat pointed tip.  The inset in this picture shows just how hairy the stems are.
These were found at the West End growing in dolomite rubble.

At the new hunting cabin on the North Shore.  The pith is tan or orange-red, whereas common elderberry has a white pith and flat topped clusters of flowers.
I have seen this in flower back on the big ridge, and there the flowers had a violet color in them.

Sometimes called sticky willy because of the small barbs that can be felt on the underside of the leaves.  It is a member of the Bedstraw genus.  The fruit has hooked tipped bristles that stick to fur and clothing.

There are two varieties on BBI, four in the state.  The other blueberry on BBi is called Velvetleaf or Canada Blueberry.
Low sweet blueberry has serrate bristle tipped leaves.  Canada blueberry has entire leaves.

Rare of BBI, but common on Round Island.  You must look in the first and second week of May here.
There is a picture already here of the capsule this will turn into.

Not listed as being on Bois Blanc, but it is in a few places.

We all call this wintergreen even though it is not in the wintergreen family.  The more appropriate name is teaberry.  It is in the Heath Family along with many other plants.
The only true wintergreen on BBI is pipsissewa.
Type that into a picture name search to see those leaves.

A May flower on BBI.  It is in the Heath family.  Once I could recognize the leave, I realized that this plant grows in many places here.  In a lot of cases it grows down deep in the "cedar" swamps.

Found in sandy places.  This is rated a 10 meaning it is restricted in it's habitat.  Found at Sand Bay and near the cross at the North Shore and probably other sandy spots.
In other words, this is a rare beauty.

Some people get blisters from this.  The lower leaves have the crowfoot look and float on water that it grows in.  When the water goes away, so do the lower leaves.  Note the one lower leaf off to the left side.  Picture taken in September.

You can see why it is called "hooked".  This picture was taken in early June.

Similar to bladder Campion except this is hairy.  There is also a very similar Night-flowering Catchfly on BBI.  The catchfly's have sticky glands and the campion's do not.

There are two species of ragweed on BBI, the common and the western.  The leaves of the western has a greyish cast due to hairs on the leaves.  The common variety has greener leaves.  The yellow part of the flower is where the pollen comes from that bothers so many people.
