Green wildflowers album has a variety of flowers you may not have noticed on your nature walks. With all the different shades of green you are sure to find the one that pulls your heart strings.
On my walks in the park I was pleasantly surprised to find a wide variety of green flowers to photograph. And I think one of the most fascinating part is finding hidden treasures under leaves like the Chinese Lantern.
See if you recognize any of these treasures from your walks.

Some green wildflowers can be found close to lakes and streams. Like this button ball growing in Herrick lake waters.
Next are Chinese lanterns which are fascinating to me. The last picture in this row is where they got their names. They actually look like those paper Chinese Lanterns.
I've only seen the flower of these plants once and I couldn't resist getting down on the ground to get the close up in the middle.
In Northern Illinois, there are lots of forests and in those forests you'll find lots of wildflowers that truly love the shade.
First two in this row are Solomon Seal plants. As you can see they love growing under trees.
The last in this row has various names. Jack in the pulpit is one I found. The flower is really not very big. About the size of my thumbs. And they don't do much more than bloom just like you see Jack in the last picture here.
The Thimble weed flower gets its name from the fruit that grows near it. They look like thimbles. And the center of the flower also resembles a thimble.
They might be green but they still attract insects.
And they are beautiful in their own way.
The last flower in this row had me guessing. The leaves on this Flower of the Hour kind of resembles watermelon leaves. But alas no watermelon here.
I hope you have enjoyed your walk through green wildflowers album. I look forward to reading your stories.
