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?]
Trillium aka red trillium, wake-robin, purple trillium, Beth root or stinking Benjamin. (Trillium erectum)
Purple Cone Flower (Echinacea).
It’s snowing in Virginia right now; it wasn’t snowing when I took this shot.
Lambs ear (Stachys byzantina)
Lesser periwinkle, dwarf periwinkle, small periwinkle, common periwinkle, myrtle or creeping myrtle. Take your pick. (Vinca minor)
