This is the( Blackberry Lily) many have said it is a new one to them. I had never seen this plant until Mildred over at Hollyberry House had it on a post two summers ago. The flower has more red spots in it sometimes enlarge to get a good look. She sent me seeds and one bulb I will not have bulbs to send yet but they are multiplying.

I will share with you this fall if you will g-mail me your address. The seeds do look like blackberrys.

We did a side trip to the Powhatan History State Park. This was setting right on the Black River in Lawrence County Arkansas and had flooded these building many times over the years. There is also a new building of Northeast Arkansas Archives which had lots of info on my Great great grandfather and his two brothers that came here in 1800's from North Carolina, some had what they called improvment of government land for possession.

Trivia Saturday

How did Daisies get their name?The daisy flower opens its petals during the day and at night the petals shut.

When you look at the petals they resemble an eye's lashes.

So they were called day's eyes which over time was corrupted to daisy.

The daisy is one of the most common weeds found in an English lawn.
