Satin Flower

Here is one of our very earliest spring wildflowers, the delicate little Satin Flower (Olsynium douglasii). While these are not really rare, I've only ever seen them in small isolated patches. These ones pop up in the same spots every year near the summit of Highrock Park in Vic West. The flowers seem almost too heavy for the slender stems and jostle around in the slightest breeze, making them very difficult to photograph.

We have something rather similar here that tends to show in shady spots for a few days, but we won't be seeing them for weeks. These are lovely!

I have them in my yard too. Didn't know what they were called.
