The spring wildflower parade is well underway. I was to Burnham Woods this morning (May 4) and counted 12 species in bloom. Spring Beauty, Round & Sharp-leaved Hepatica, White and Red Trilliums, Blue Cohosh, Early Meadow Rue, Trout lily, Round-leaved Violet, Uvularia, Bloodroot and Coltsfoot. False Solomon’s Seal will be open any day now.
