Crow’s Nest: More blooms

April 21, 2011

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.
