Spring is here!! After years of drought, we have been enjoying the spring rains. I took a group of middle schoolers from a local Montessori School to see the Hepatica and Bloodroot that I found blooming last week. They had passed their peak, but we were greeted with Trillium and Virginia Pennywort. The Trillium this year are huge, and one of them had a pale yellow bloom. I e-mailed a lady from the GNPS ( asking her about the yellow color. She felt that it was just a variation of the brownish/red Trillium, but it was unusual to see. Tomorrow will be another sunny day before another round of rain, so I will walk the woods and continue my treasure hunt!
