A couple of mystery flowers

3 posts in this topic

I went to WI. yesterday to shot a series on flyfishing the trico hatch. The hatch never really developed so I spent the morning wading through a dew soaked water meadow. I found these two flowers that I coundn't identify. Does anyone know what they are?

I would take a stab at wild bergamot on the top one if the serrated leaf is the one that goes with the plant. The frondier leaf looks more like starry false Solomon's seal. These are both guesses from what I have in the yard--not a botany nut (I mean that in a positive sense, I admire all of you and aspire to that ability some day.) The second looks a bit like the germander which was on the same page as bergamot when I went to my field book to check spelling.

That's a stab in the dark (which is known to better than a stab in the back.).

Sarah, you are correct the first one is a Bergamot. The second one I'm told is a plant called a "Heals_All". It is not native to North America and is used a great deal in folk medicine.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
