First, I want to say “thank you!” to everyone who pre-registered for the upcoming Wild Edible Plant & Mushroom Outing (featuring Sam Thayer!) on June 2nd. The event filled to max capacity within 24 hours and registration is now closed. Stay tuned for another exciting Learn Your Land event to be held in early July!
Second, let’s talk about flowers.
If you’re a wildflower enthusiast like me, perhaps you’ll agree that the spring ephemeral wildflower season is one of the best times of year to explore the woods.
What’s not to love about a hillside teeming with White Trillium? Or a vernal pool speckled with Marsh Marigold? Or a floodplain loaded with Virginia Bluebells?
Personally, I can’t think of a spring ephemeral wildflower I don’t like. No matter the color, no matter the size… each one is a superstar in its own special way.
Recently, I took to the woods in search of these fleeting flowers and tried my best to capture the magic on film. The sky was sunny, the air was warm, and plenty of plants were blooming that afternoon. Needless to say, the wildflowers definitely put on a good show. Check it out!
Speaking of ephemeral organisms, morel mushrooms are making grand appearances all over the woods right now. Depending on where you live, these choice edible fungi may currently be fruiting in your neck of the woods. Check out this recent Instagram post to learn more about these elusive springtime fungi!
Thanks for reading and watching, and as always, thank you for your support!
