Touch-me-nots are blooming in the shade at many area parks.

These plants are said to be good for treating a myriad of skin ailments; rashes, poison ivy, athletes foot. 

They blow seed out of their seed pods when you touch or brush up against them; thus the name touch-me-not. They also shine like tiny little jewels in the shade. Which reminds me of another name for them; Jewelweed.
