Perhaps we will be passing through the area at the right time to see this beauty again. It is the Great Spurred Violet, Viola selkirkii. The blooms are quite large, and I knew the minute I saw it in 2003 that it was a new species for my life list!
Here's another northern treat, the pipsissewa Chimaphila umbellata. It had already gone to seed in May 2003. Maybe we'll see one in bloom this time!
