A Walk in the Woods

On one of my email lists, people report the first wildflowers of the year. This always gets me feeling antsy because I don't want to miss the spring ephemerals -- they are gone so quickly!

I was able to relax a little over the weekend when I saw that most flowers are not ready yet. Like these trout lilies. I saw only one in full bloom.

And these Dutchmen's Breeches. They are starting, but not yet full. I saw only a few in full bloom. But the leaves and buds are abundantly spread throughout the woods.

The May apples are preparing, too:

The moss was flowering.

And of course, I found a geocache. Number #254 for me.

Gotta include a pic with the gps for proof.
