Jack’s Walk

First trillium of the year

It’s only 4° today and and almost feels as if it could snow. Despite this shock to the system, the forest is starting to wake up. Our favorite park is actually a protected wildflower sanctuary and normally there are hundreds of trilliums by now. Today we found only one, but the ground cover is greening up and I’m sure more trilliums will show up soon. The forecast is for two more days of cold and then temperatures in the twenties. Now that will get the flowers growing.

    Checked on the shady perennials I planted last year today. Most seem to be coming up in spite of a bad winter (extremely cold without ground cover with snow). I need to buy and plant more of those varieties. Well worth the effort/expense.
