Wildflowers in bloom

1troutlillyThe deciduous forests of the Riverlands will be alive with color for the next few weeks. The ephemeral flowers of spring will be putting on a display as they take advantage of the moisture and sunlight that will be in shorter supply once the leaves are on the trees. Flowers such as spring beauty, trout lily (seen here), Dutchman’s breeches, Virginia bluebells, cut-leaved toothwort, and many others can readily been seen as you walk the trails of the Riverlands and Wetlands Nature Area.
