Pleasant Surprise

My husband limbed up some hemlocks beside a small stream on our property, and this was our pleasant surprise. It is an Indian Pipe wildflower, also called Ghost Plant, because of its absence of chlorophyll. It is quite a striking sight tucked in amongst the leaves. It blooms June-Sept. and if you're walking in the woods, you can't miss it! Mary


  1. I love the Indian Pipes! Haven't seen one in years. Reminds me of my camping days - thanks for showing it.
