Fly-Honeysuckle, Photo by Erik Anderson

Wildflowers May 26-27, 2002

Found blooming in Ely by Erik W. L. Anderson (Be sure to check out the past reports linked at the right as well!)

We enjoyed a beautiful couple of days along the Kawishiwi Trail in Ely.  At Farm Lake I found a nice batch of Wood Anemone along with Strawberry and Dandelions.  Marsh Marigolds by Erik W. L. Anderson

My favorite find was Marsh Marigolds all along the Garden Lake Road on Memorial Day.  There were hundreds of plants all along the road.  Down at the shore of Garden Lake, I found some nice Fly Honeysuckle bushes.

In town at Miner Lake, I found what appeared to be stunted Forget-Me-Not's blooming as a ground cover.

What we saw:

Anemone, Wood - Anemone quinquefolia
Dandelion, Common - Taraxacum officinale
Fly-Honeysuckle - Lonicera canadensis
Forget-Me-Not or possibly Gill-Over-The-Ground
Marsh-marigold, Cowslip - Caltha palustris
Strawberry, Common - Fragaria virginiana
