Bohemia Ecological Preserve

In early spring the Small-flowered Blue-eyed Mary can be found by the serpentine rocks at Four Corners. It has tiny blue-violet and white flowers attached to a short, hairy stalk. Each flower has 4 stamens tucked behind a small "secret" rounded middle lobe. If this minute charmer doesn't get you to bend down and examine it with a hand lens, nothing will! Formerly in the Snapdragon Family, now in the Plantain Family.
