Unknown Wildflower

vtpeacenik (of Flickr) says of the unknown flower:
I checked a book and this seems to be either a Three-leaved False Solomon's-Seal...otherwise known as Smilacina Trifolia. That has 6-pointed flowers. OR...Wild Lily-of-the-Valley, otherwise known as Canadian Mayflower.That one has 4-pointed flowers.
Thank you, vt!
Both flowers were found on the Appalachian Trail in Killington, VT.

  2. Those dandelions have Libby sneezing and wheezing so bad that I had to get her some allergy medicine- we have a yard full of them! Love the bright vibrant colors in these pictures.
