  1. I like this, but I’m so ignorant about plants, it’s downright embarrassing! Went out yesterday over several acres to find anything coming up after the drought and recent rain, besides a few grasses. Found a tiny white 5-star-petal flower in a few places. They were atop a single stalk about six inches high. I’ll be back to search through your site to find their name! Thanks for being here.
