Woodland Apparition

Ghost Flower 02

This ghostly flower can be found blooming in the deep woods from June to September, when the leaf canopy creates a shady gloom.  A symbiotic relationship between a fungus (mycorrhiza fungi) and tree roots releases nutrients that the myco-heterotrophic Ghost Plant soaks up.

Midsummer star-shine, caught in a green glove, is redistributed all sorts of critters.

Sunshine…Finally

We have no shortage of water right now in the northeast.  So, when the shadows begin to appear, I gratefully acknowledge the sunshine at my table.
