Flower for the Day 4-11-12


May Apple  Also Mandrake. (Podophyllum peltatum)  Each spring this stand of May
apples shows up in the shady woods around Innsbrook. The striking umbrella like leaves 
spread like a skirt.


If you look under the skirt  you will find a delicate single white flower.
 

As you can imagine it is not always easy to see under a skirt but well worth the
effort.
