With the spring rains the wildflowers emerge. Hesperus matronalis is an herbaceous plant in the mustard family, Brassicaceae. It
lined our trail on our easter walk and is coming up now in the wildflower garden. It has many common names including dame's rocket, damask violet, dame's-violet, dames-wort, dame's gilliflower, night-scented gilliflower, queen's gilliflower, rogue's gilliflower, summer lilac, sweet rocket, mother-of-the-evening and winter gilliflower.
It is often mistaken for phlox which blooms later in the year.
Rosebud lips and soft copper eyes
Waited on by fireflies
Crowned with fern and laurel bits.
She's Eo's sister...Hesperis.

On Easter we walked on a beautiful nature trail in the Meadows area of Innsbrook Missouri. The path is a quiet wooded gentle trail
which parallels a small branch of Charrette Creek. There are
limestone boulders and a cliff.There is one steep area which can be tricky if it has rained.
The trail came to a wonderful bench
where it was peaceful
and overlooked the silent creek.
There were many spring wildflowers including this wild geranium which was sprouting out of a rock.
This year has been very successful for ajuga. This perennial ground cover has been coming up everywhere and flourishing. This is Ajuga reptans. It is also called bugleweed, ground pine, carpet bugle, or just bugle. It is in the mint family (Lamiaceae).
