My brother lives in an area that’s often shady, often cold. But he finds beauty everywhere in his yard and in the surrounding woods. From Jomegat,
As I headed back to the house, I walked by the tiny flower bed we have on the north side of the house. A couple of years ago a friend of mine brought in a plant that he had found in the woods. He wanted to know what it was, and I didn’t know off the top of my head. I did some research and determined that it was Downy Rattlesnake Plantain (Goodyera pubescens).
Ironic that plantain bananas grow in tropical climates, but this downy rattlesnake plantain clearly thrives in the cool.
