as May turns into June...

As May turns into June, blooms in the woods are less likely to be found, but the ferns will be in their glory soon.
mayapple, Podophyllum peltatum
trillium, Trillium grandiflorum -- there's still a few to be found

fading glory of same trillium as above

yellow lady's slipper, Cyprepedium calceolus

Last spring, on a miserable rainy day, I was really, really depressed heading to work at my job in the city, when something made me look in the woods. The incredible lift these slippers gave me that day will be an experience I will always think of whenever I see them. The beauty of nature is very powerful.

What wonderful plants you have in your woods. Especially the Cyprepediums. I think our nearby woods only have mayapples and maybe a jack-in-the-pulpit or two.

Hey Ki, you never know. I'm always surprised by my woods! And it doesn't matter what the season when I wander around. I'm always sure to find something interesting to look at.
