Cat’s Ears

AKA

Star Tulip

Daily Photo #20

The local name is Cat’s Ear but there is an invasive dandelion type flower in England that goes by a nearly identical name so some people prefer the Star Tulip designation.

This petite wildflower cuddles deep into meadow grasses and the three fuzzy white petals contrasting with the purple throat and sepals as well as pale blue touches make it difficult to photograph (after many tries, I just gave up and settled for this one) but beautiful to look at. It seems to favor 3 or 4 flowers to a cluster and has one long leaf. Kids love to pick it.  Don’t let them.  There aren’t enough as it is.
