Barren Strawberry

I am still exploring the woods, looking for spring wildflowers.
The barren strawberry looks a lot like its edible cousin, except for the colour.
But the fruit only has one seed, and it is not encased in a wonderful fruit.
I am linking this post with Today's Flowers.

These strawberries are so fine and filigrane flowers. They looks very pretty.

They are lovely yellow flowers even if they don't bare the delicious strawberries.

It's beautiful -- and sometimes (often) that is enough. Every plant and flower doesn't need a practical use! (Though that being said, I sure am glad that there is a strawberry plant that yields lovely edible berries.)

On your comment on my Fireweed post, I am thinking that they don't worry too much about weeds and invasive plants up here in Alaska...the growing season is so short, probably anything that isn't meant to be here wouldn't survive. (I don't know this for sure, so I could be wrong... I do know that they don't seem to worry about dandelions and things we'd call weeds in the lower 48.)
