This one stumped me for a while because the upper leaves are not lobed.

Mike,

Not sure if you picked up on this in one of the other threads. One of the features of the new album is the ability to link thumbnails to the larger images in the album. The BBcode is in the picture info below the large image. Just a click in the box highlights the code, a simple Ctrl+C copies it, and you can paste it into your message.
You can do this:
Code:
[albumimg]2540[/albumimg]

to produce this:

This is the so called wintergreen that people chew the leaves and eat the red berrys. It is not in the wintergreen family and should be called teaberry. See pipsissewa to view a plant on BBI that is in the Wintergreen Family.

I want to go to Round Island in the first or second week of May. These are common over there. Take a hike up into the hardwoods to see these spring flowers. Anyone interested?

With the new set-up on the home page, where pictures are displayed. I don't feel it necessary to continue this thread. If you want to see flower pictures, go to Bob-Lo Wild Flowers. in the Album.

Hoary Bitter Cress - Cardamine hirsuta
Imported topsoil probably brought this European invader. It can be found on the west side of Pointe Aux Pins. Its a mustard with four tiny petals. Near the base of the plant can be found white hairs. Hoary means white haired. Click the picture for a super close-up.
