Mayapple, butterfly


I thought I would show the Mayapple plant in its entirety...it is not a real apple.  All parts of the plant are poisonous.  I thought I had heard it was poisonous, so looked it up and happened to find that it is also called American Mandrake or wild mandrake and ground lemon.  All my life, I  always heard it called Mayapple....

Now for the real photograph of the day, this butterfly.


Both photos taken in 2012.

WWWOOOWWWW!!!! It is all so GORGEOUS!!! And yes, I have heard of Mandrake and Mandrake Root. Used as poison in the olden days. I have never seen it! It looks like perfect canopies, umbrellas. And the butterfly is stunning, so beautiful.

Wonderful butterfly. I don't think I've seen the plant before. Hope there are non lurking where my dogs can get them because they would surely be nibbling at them.

I'm not familiar with the Mayapple plant, but even the leaves are pretty. The butterfly is lovely of course.

I've seen those plants along the side of one of the roads I walk along.
Great shot of the butterfly.
