A walk on nature's wild side
Do you suppose if Wordsworth had written about a host of golden dandelions, this lowly flower might be better loved?
Trout-Lily or Adder's-Tongue. I love both these names.
Ferns unfurling. Don't they look like some kind of pods in a horror movie?
This is called Juneberry, Shadbush, Serviceberry. Around here when we see the blooms it means the arrival of black flies.
Yellow bedstraw. Another great name. A bit on the weedy side but the leaves and the flowers to come are beautiful.
