One of my favorite summer wildflowers, spiderwort is in abundant bloom right now. This is a native wildflower.

This beautiful flower is so named because the person naming the flower decided that the leaves were arranged like a squatting spider. I don't know...I think I could have figured out a better name.

The flowers open in the morning and then wilt and turn into a jelly like fluid. I caught these in the morning before the meltdown.
