Turks Head Lily

Friends, this beautiful wildflower is native to this region but somewhat rare to find in Crex except in areas that have been burned and not mowed.  The biggest threats to its survival are people picking wildflowers and the whitetail deer who think this lily and the wood lily make a delicious snack.  So don’t pick and scare away any deer you see eating these pretty flowers :), til Tomorrow MJ
