Can anyone name this delightful flower I saw in a field by the Connecticut River this weekend? Based on its shape and variegated color, my imagination saw it as an Indian Paintbrush. Curiously though, the images of my wildflower ID resources didn’t match when I later checked it out. Perhaps someone can tell me what it is? Maybe some kind of clover?
In the meantime, its image did serve to reawaken my artist’s itch, to remind me that my paints and brushes are waiting. I’ll see if I can paint something as lovely as this nameless (for now) beauty!
