Orchid on a cold winter day.
As I feared, my identification of last week’s Something Bright was wrong. The correct identification is paintbrush (Haemanthus albiflos).
No idea what this week’s flower is.
[UPDATE:It is the Great masterwort (Astrantia major). How can you not love something called Great Masterwort?]
Snow Brush aka Sticky Laurel or Tobacco Brush (Ceanothus velutinus var. velutinus)
I’m not terribly confident of this identification, but it’s what I put in my notes when I shot this back in 2017.
I was right about being wrong.
This is Haemanthus albiflos, which some call paintbrush. I got the brush part correct and everything else wrong.
Trillium aka red trillium, wake-robin, purple trillium, Beth root or stinking Benjamin. (Trillium erectum)
