Five Petals, Five Leaflets

Potentilla arguta PRAIRIE CINQUEFOIL

Potentilla arguta PRAIRIE CINQUEFOIL

To the right you see Potentilla arguta PRAIRIE CINQUEFOIL. This species is part of the rose family. Potentilla means little, powerful one, referring to medicinal properties, and arguta means sharp-toothed. The common name comes from the five leaflets in the compound leaf; the flower also has five petals. 

Work continues on the layout of book two, Elusive Splendor. I hope to have it finished and in the editing stage by mid-March.
