Gaywings

 
I should be at my friend, Elaine's place tonight.

For a little big of color, I bring you gaywings. Don't they look like a little orchid?

Sorry, it isn't an orchid. It's a milkwort. It's other common name is fringed milkwort. Doesn't sing quite like "gaywings" does it? The scientific name is Polyagala paucifolia. Here they are in bud.

If you run across a patch of these little beauties in the woods, you won't forget. They light up the forest floor.
