The Bells of a Summer Sunset

The tiny flowers of Solomon's Seal glow in the summer sunset. You'll need to look from ground level to see this view. The flowers hang under elongated leaves. The plant grows in the forest's shade from a rhizome that is said to be good to eat. According to my Audubon field guide, when the stalk of the plant is broken from the rhizome the scar that is left behind looks much like King Solomon's seal, thus the name. Don't figure....
