After the unusually cold start to spring, the natural world was in a hurry to catch up. In only four weeks, the woods were transformed into a sea of many shades of green. The early spring wildflowers came and went during a week of storms. I saw the Dutchman’s-breeches flowers which arrived first before the storms. I missed the other early spring wildflowers.
In late May, wild columbine flowers waved in the breeze next to the path. The May-apple flowers found shelter under their leaves.
