Crow’s Nest: More blooms
Shadbush (amelanchier, serviceberry) is blooming right now at Crow’s Nest, with many visible at the woods edge along Piersol Road. It’s flowering time is short but glorious. Here’s a closeup:
And along the banks of Piersol Road you can also see the small flowers of trailing arbutus (Epigaea repens). They’re white with just a hint of pink.
If wildflower hunting is your thing, this weekend will be a great time for you to get out to the preserves.
