Today's Flowers #40

My friend Luiz from Brazil does the Today's Flowers Meme, check it out. Come and join with your flower photos. Sunday at 7 GMT is the post time.

This is a small wild flower on a bush which I saw when I was in the Appalachian Mountain foothills. I'm not sure what it is called. They were about a 1/2" in size.
This wooded valley area was filled with Trillium. The woods were filled with the flower. If you click the photo you will see it better.
These are the flower on my Ohio Buckeye Tree with a Bumble Bee working the flowers.
I do hope you check out some of the other neat flowers which are shown.

I'm not sure what that little flower is but I've seen it. It reminds me of jasmine.

The woods are filled with such delicate hidden wild flowers such as your post shows!The trillium is the official provincial flower of Ontario
the province in Canada that I reside!
They are also a protected species.No digging them up..NOT allowed!
Love the capture of your bumble bee!

Lovely flowers - but I am not sure either! And I love the capture of the bumblebee in flight! Great!

Ebie said...

Those are beautiful wild flowers. I don't know the name either.

Nice! Trillium. What a musical name, at least to me.

Have a great week.

Very nice pictures..
Unknown flowers, but beautiful.
Love the bee in your picture.
No flowers no bees,
No bees no flowers.

Nice tom, the first plant is some species of honeysuckle, but I can't tell if it is a native one or not.

Thumbelina said...

That bee is an awesome shot! Brilliant.
I think the first one is maybe of the honeysuckle family. Lovely flowers.

Mary said...

That bush is honeysuckle! Pull off a flower and suck the nectar out of it :-) They should smell real sweet, too.

Digital Flower Pictures said...

I guess Honeysuckle, too. Those Trillium look amazing. I was happy when 2 came up in the garden last year.

I love your wildflowers. It is wonderful what beauty meadows and forests offer us.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Tom, Looks like Honeysuckle.. It has a sweet smell (almost too sweet--if you know what I mean).

Love the Trillium. The Smokies are coevered with it.

Hope you have had a great day. It's COLD here today... Darn!!!

I believe that first shot is honeysuckle. One of my favorites. Its beautiful scent will stop you in your tracks.
Love the bumblebee!

I always love seeing the Trillium! I just haven't been in the woods enough this spring to see any yet. :(
