Pipe Pipsqueaks

We haven't had very many Indian Pipes growing this year; it's been too dry. These two tiny ones were growing by the stream.

Well, I had neither seen nor heard of those before now!

And now I have! :)

Wonderful! I have seen none this year...maybe, when/if we get rain.

You have very interesting plant life in your neck of the woods.

Is this a weed?

We don't have those around here.
Very cool.

I have never seen these before either!

The Indian Pipes look like a cousin to the "Snow Plant" seen in the mountains of CA. Kind of "tubular", they rise up just as the snow is melting.

Funny, last summer was to wet and this summer to hot & dry there!

I've never heard of them. But I really like to color! Hope you're feeling better!
