Wildflowers make an appearance.

The ground has finally warmed and some spring wildflowers are making an appearance. A few years ago, some kind person planted a variety of wild flowers in the park and they have flourished.

Trout lily is a beautiful and fascinating plant because it relies on ants to pollinate its flowers as well as spread its seeds.

These bluebells aren’t native but they add a vivid splash of colour.

Northern Blue Violets aren’t spectacular but are a welcome addition to the forest floor.

Not a trace of trilliums unfortunately. I suspect they were dug out long ago.
