Flowers in Bloom
The early spring ephemerals we have been waiting for so long are here to make you smile. This bloodroot on the Upper Bill's Woods trail opened its blossoms toward the sun today, just ahead of the delicate Dutchman's Breeches, the gently arching Virginia Bluebells, and simply shaped Trillium. Hepatica was blooming by the Tent Colony path. The spring flower show should be at its best at the time of the next field trip: Spring Wildflowers of the Preserve, May 4 (Sunday) 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm led by Glenda Denniston. Mark your calendar.
And what flowers did you see?

On April 20 there were Bloodroot, Hepatica, False Rue Anemone, Common Violet, and a small number of Spring Beauty in full bloom in Eastern Bill's Woods. Various small native bees were nectaring on some of them.
