Star flowers everywhere

I went for a walk this morning in a stand of old Pines trees locally known as, yes, you guessed it, "The Pines."  The forest floor of the Pines is covered with Pine needles and old leaves, and wildflowers.  Today I found many beautiful Star Flowers there!
  My walk was accompanied with the cheerful sounds of warblers playing their tatalizing games of" hide from the camera." The air was filled with fragrance from the many wild trees sharing their beautiful blossoms like this wild apple tree growing from the hillside by the river.
And what can be more beautiful than the bountiful presence of dandelions in their many stages of growth and regeneration?

Love photographs taken on our walk Ann. Those star flowers are so pretty. You've inspired me to get off here and get out of the house. Have a great weekend.

What an incredible blossom. I am not at all familiar with this plant, but it sounds like one I would like to get to know better.
