My favorite Spring wildflower isn't the brightest or showiest; in fact, the bluet is so tiny, it could easily be missed. It doesn't grow here in Kenton County, where I live, nor in southwest Ohio, where I grew up. When we bought property on the Kinniconick Creek in Lewis County, I was excited to discover many species of plants I had never seen before. A delicate little four-lobed star of pale blue with a bright yellow center, I couldn't help thinking of it as a faerie flower.
See what I mean?
