Skullcap Bouquet

We have two different kinds of skullcap (Scutellaria) growing on the mountain, and because they aren’t on any of our established trails, I tend to forget to go look for them every spring.

Skullcap is in the mint family, and ours are smallish, perhaps 4 inches tall, and the purple flowers, while beautiful, are not particularly showy.

But there are enough of them in this stretch of land that I feel comfortable picking a few to bring home for a little bouquet.
