Purple Flower

These delicate purple flowers were blooming under a tree along a path to a nature trail. There is an abandoned house nearby so these could be a remnant of long ago garden.

The sun was just coming onto this patch and the blooms were in various stages of opening.

Narcissus and a Wildflower, Yellow

Narcissus of various types bloom in late December and into January in the South Carolina low country.

I spotted several bunches of these petite yellow ones on a recent walk around Magnolia Plantation and Gardens.

They were in random spots with no other live vegetation around them which led me to a low key treatment.

Swamp Spider Lily

Spider Lilies, or Swamp Lilies–take your pick. I’ve heard them called both and a Google search finds an overwhelming number of variations on each name.

I do not know if these particular ones naturalized on their own around the swamp or if they were planted. The flowers are short lived, especially in the heat, and it is a delight to spot them in fresh bloom.
