This is a quick addendum to my previous post on Crane-fly Orchids, back in July. This native ephemeral plant has those beautiful green basal leaves that are present in the winter and then a flower stalk in the summer. Well, this week while walking through the shade garden I noticed a spent flower stalk.
Difficult to photograph with a cell phone, the automatic focus function has a hard time focusing on the slender stalk. I persevered and was able to get a couple shots. Here is the best. Look at all those seed pods! I believe we will have a nice stand of Tipularia discolor, Crane-fly Orchid for years to come.
