Snowplants in the Forest



A snowplant is one of the more unusual things to find in the forest. Many sprouted up down the road from my house. That's what they do, they just suddenly appear. Their color is so unusual for our forest. When you first see them, you're bound to think they are man-made. And I don't know why they're called "snowplants", it hasn't snowed for weeks now. Another short lived beauty, these are so fun to see, and fairly rare. So enjoy them if you're lucky enough to see one!

Hadn't seen them before, but I saw TONS on Saturday hiking from Deer Springs Trail across to Humber Park. They were beautiful. L. S. kept claiming they were called "snow-something" but Leslie and I didn't really believe him. We thought a name with fire in it would seem more appropriate. So I sent him a link to your site!

WOW! I had no idea something that looks like that existed in nature. :-) Cool!
