Hi, My Name Is Rebecca and I Am a Wildflower Addict.

I went back out on the trails yesterday to photograph some of the wildflowers I’d found and ended up finding even more.  Blooming in our woods at the moment are:

  • Virginia bluebells
  • Cutleaf toothwort
  • Spring cress
  • Dutchman’s breeches
  • Yellow trout lily
  • White trillium
  • Bloodroot
  • Hepatica
  • Lesser celandine (introduced from Europe)
  • Rue anemone
  • Wood anemone
  • Small-flowered crowfoot
  • Common blue violet

Additionally, the mayapples are up!  They won’t bloom for another month yet but I love them for the way they appear everywhere almost overnight, like little green umbrellas unfurling from the ground.  Wildflowers – finding them, identifying them, photographing them – are definitely addictive.
