In early November in Southwest Florida, many yards are covered are covered with small star shaped flowers. From a distance it looks like snow. We call them ‘snow flowers’ but this isn’t their botaniucal name. (I must return to my reference books…)
These flowers arrive just when people in Florida are reminiscing about Snow Up North.
We didn’t use to have so many yards with so many snow flowers. They grow on non-manicured yards and I suppose are considered a”weed,” but I know a lot of people who think they are great.
My Friend B_____ was away from Southwest Florida for a few months and the weekend he returned I led him up to a hillside coverd in Snow Flowers. And the flowers were covered with Bees!
