On Thursday afternoon, April 5, I took a short bike ride on the rail trail south of Little Falls. I was surprised to see a lot of wildflowers that I hadn't seen on my previous ride on April 1st.
The difference is likely due to the combination of time and geography.
Here are four of the nicer finds.
On the left: Red Trillium (Trillium erectum). It was growing on a steep hillside, so the sun was giving it a natural back lighting. On the left: Jack-in-the-Pulpit (Arisaema triphyllum).
Below: Dutchman's Breeches (Dicentra cucullaria) and Bluets (Houstonia caerulea). The Bluets were higher up in the woods on the road to Little Falls.
