Mid to late 19th century / Foster, Sarah Haven (1827-1900)
A watercolor painting of several wildflowers. The chain of bell-shaped flowers is possibly pieris, known in North America as andromeda. The blue flowers are Iris versicolor, commonly known as blue flag. The small white flowers towards the bottom are Coptis trifolia, commonly known as goldthread. The yellow flowers are Caltha palustris, also known as marsh marigold. The larger white flowers with skinny petals are possibly wild cherry. Inscription reads, "Dwarf Andromeda. / Blue Flag. / Gold thread. Wild cherry / Marsh marigold."
