Too busy/tired/late to post anything but a picture of a pretty flower Monday!

From the archives. I believe that this is a Virginia Waterleaf. Anybody know for sure? Also known as a Shawnee Salad, based on anecdotal evidence that Shawnee Indians ate this plant.

Shawnee Salad, Indian Salad, Wildflower, Lavender Waterleaf, Virginia Waterleaf, Indiana

Edible — but leaves easily mistaken for a poisonous plant

Be sure to enlarge photo by clicking on it if you need to. You don’t want to miss the little green bug in the center of the flower. I didn’t notice that this bug was posing for me until I was editing the photo.
