The garden and plants have been neglected for two weeks while I traveled to Missouri and Oklahoma. The best part was visiting with family and friends. It was a wonderful trip with delightful discoveries in my son and daughter-in-law’s backyard. The steep slope is covered with wildflowers growing under the shade of many trees.

There were hundreds of Dutchman’s Breeches.

After searching the internet I found out these are Toothwart.

The trout lilies, or White Dogtooth Violets, were the most numerous. This one grows beside a Mayapple that is smaller than the ones in the North Carolina mountains. Now I have transplanted them all, except for the Mayapple, from Missouri to North Carolina. That will add to the numerous variety I already have. Those will be coming up in a following post.
