Both of these flowers were found at ground level in several back yards of places in which I found myself this weekend.
The first, a Grape Hyacinth, is from Springfield. Beautiful little "grapes" on these guys.
And the second, a Bleeding Heart, is from Illinois. I've seen these many times in books, but have never had the chance to photograph them in the wild and was very appreciative of the opportunity to see them today. I love these interesting flowers!
