April 16 wildflowers

I attended the meeting for our community garden at Blandford Nature Center. Afterward, I walked home through the damp woods, and spotted the following flowers: Bloodroot, spring beauties, skunk cabbage just finishing flowering, cut-leaved toothwort, Dutch breeches, lots of violets of all colors. The may apple leaves are whorling, and trillium buds are showing white. At home, our goldfish survived the winter in the little pond, and hyacinth and mini-daffies are blooming.

Of course, it has snowed since then, but everything seems to be just fine. I hope the community garden farmer plowed the snow into the acreage for the nitrogen!
