Winter is a beautiful time of year, but sometimes in the cold and snow it’s good to remember summer. Here’s a small taste of midsummer in the woods and meadows around Pittsburgh.
The rough-fruited cinquefoil, Potentilla recta.
A woodland waterfall.
A red clover, Trifolium pratense.
A white clover, Trifolium repens, in an unusually strong bicolor.
A birdfoot trefoil, Lotus corniculatus.
When you come across any wildflower in Pittsburgh and nearby, Wildflowers of Western Pennsylvania is an essential resource. Dr. Bob Zuberbuhler has built a unique and comprehensive Web reference, both informative and beautiful.
