These flowers are called ballhead waterleaf. They are easy to miss because the leaves kind of cover up the flowers if you are looking straight down at them. I’ve seen them in a couple of places this spring and mostly because they were on a bank where you could actually spot the flowers.

If you are out looking for them, it helps to know how to find them. They are usually found east of the Cascades in Washington and in moist, open slopes and woodlands per the Burke Herbarium Image Collection.

Proverbs 2 is about wisdom. Here’s how we can get it:

Cry out for wisdom,
and beg for understanding.
Search for it like silver,
and hunt for it like hidden treasure.

Then you will understand respect for the LORD,
and you will find that you know God.
Proverbs 2:3-5 (NCV)
