    1. Thank you, Linda. We went for a late afternoon walk in Mohican State Park today and woods floor along the river was covered with Dutchman’s Breeches.

  1. We went for a walk yesterday in the Mill Hollow section of the Vermilion River Reservation. I had never seen so many bluebells ever. They blanketed huge swaths of land. Didn’t see any Dutchman’s Breeches, though.

    1. All the bluebells I have seen this year haven’t seemed very vigorous…I hope you get to see the Dutchman’s Breeches before they’re gone. I think we are going try for our annual trip to the Lakeside Daisy preserve this week…always interesting to see the birds and wildflowers in that area.

    1. It hasn’t changed as far as I know. Just a pull off on a wide berm. It hasn’t been busy any time we’ve been there. We always go on a weekday early in May…

    2. I think that they might have expanded the preserve, maybe last year? That might have provided a different access point. I’ll let you know if we find anything new this week.

  2. Such extraordinary little things, those flowers. I rarely saw them back east but when I did, I was thrilled. Your black and white does them justice. Oh, Linda said that! Wouldn’t you know! When are you guys going to meet? Come on!! 😉
    p.s. We are having a fantastic year for wildflowers here, too. I’ll post some soon.

    1. Our wildflowers are lagging this year and most seem to be lacking in vigor…but they’re coming and I’m not complaining. I really kind of like a long drawn out spring season. 🙂

      1. A long, drawn-out spring is a good thing. That’s one of the things that I like about the PNW. The winters are long and drawn-out, too, with few changes in temperature, which gets very tiresome. But spring here is cool and usually wet. I don’t think we’ve hit 60 degrees yet – though normally we would have by now. Every day it’s in the 50s, every night it’s in the 40s, clouds come and go and rain comes and goes. But any knid of spring is good, somehow. 🙂
