A Walk In the Woods

Here is what we saw:

This is one we couldn't identify. A friend thought is might be blue cohosh,
I couldn't confirm that.

The aforementioned friend also identified this one as Twinleaf . . .

. . . and this as Siberian Squill

Fiddlehead fern

Looking at the ground . . . lots of things happen there.

Marsh Marigold

Crayfish and Equisetum (had to look up how to spell that one!)

False Rue Anemone

Yellow Trout Lily

White Trout Lily

Cut-Leaved Toothwort (Evie tells me that "wort" means common.)

Wow that was fun! We also saw a female pileated woodpecker, and were escorted on our bikes by hundreds of warblers. We will go out again soon, for sure!

Wow! Neat pictures. I've never heard of Equisetum. You'll have to tell me more about it. I'm envious about the pileated woodpecker! I've never managed to see one yet.

Wow, this is the day for me to be introduced to plants I've never seen!
We don't have any of that around here!
