This is a cold dry spring and the flowers
are later than usual but not in the abundance we are use to. We
went to the Pike Lake road to check on the Bloodroot and they were all
gone. When we went to the Ward Lake road to find the Dutchman's
Breeches, Spring Beauty and Wood Anemone the plants were smaller and had
fewer blooms. Nevertheless, it was a beautiful day and it was fun
walking around in the woods.
