Found female and male Early Meadow Rues blooming.
Yellow Mandarin and Spotted Mandarins and Large-flowered Bellworts.
Saw Trillium erectum with the red and the white variety next to each other.
Learned more about tree species, especially Magnolias since Jack joined us on this hike.
Umbrella-leaf in bloom and lush next to the lovely flowing stream.
Enjoyed having lunch below the Wasilik Poplar and thinking about all the animals still using this old tree even though it has died.
