As promised, here is the latest update on what’s blooming, and it just keeps getting better over the next few weeks!
Currently, you can see flowers of:
Spring Beauty (Claytonia virginica )
Bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis)
Spicebush (Lindera benaoin) (just like Forsythia, the yellow flowers appear before the leaves on this bush)
Down by the stream you will also see the big (smelly) leaves of Skunk Cabbage (Symlocarpus foetidus) emerging.
Here’s a link that provides pictures and more details about each of these early bloomers: http://www.personal.psu.edu/dys100/whatsblooming/earlyApril.htm
If you see other things or have questions, please ask! I love this stuff!
