a walk in the woods
It's amazing what you can find sometimes getting off the beaten path. I posted about that strange daffodil I found recently. On that same walk, same area I also saw lots of other things.
that odd daffodil
tons of dog's tooth violets (trout lilies)
an unknown cute purple flower (size of a violet)
literally thousands of luecojem (snowflakes)
Sorry, my photography is not so great as some peoples. This was in a sort of woodsy "no-mans" land off of crabtree creek. I also saw some Claytonia (spring beauty) near there one year, but I couldn't find any this time. Either they got mowed down or they just hadn't quite started yet.
The trout lilies were the nicest surprise. I'd never seen so many growing in the wild, though they were scattered somewhat and had just started so I didn't get a picture of a good group.
The only thing that comes close is the time my husband and I stumbled across a huge patch of trilliums in full bloom. They varied in shades from purple to white as far as we could see. Just gorgeous!
What are your greatest finds? (oh, and anyone know what that purple flower is?) -Ais.
