Another update – this one should be entitled “Time for Trillium”.
The large-flowered trillium is blooming in great abundance (literally thousands of plants) on the Roaring Run trail in Apollo. If you can get there this weekend, I heartily recommend it. If you can’t, there’s a picture in the link below.
Other sights in the woods this week include:
Emerging fern fiddleheads (an edible delicacy – but only if you know the correct species! Many are poisonous….) Like Tacos!
Dutchman’s breeches are still blooming
Rue anemone – also called windflower.
Wild plum trees (with their many tiny brilliant magenta flowers)
