Crow’s Nest: Now blooming

April 26, 2012

At Crow’s Nest Preserve wild geranium (Geranium maculatum) and showy orchis (Galearis spectabilis) are in bloom; you can see them along the Deep Woods Trail.

Also Canada mayflower (Maianthemum canadense) is blooming at scattered locations in the woods, and nodding trillium (Trillium cernuum) is blooming near the visitor center barn.

The pink ladies slipper orchids are not yet in bloom… they are usually out in the first week of May. Edit: Some are still in bud but others are now in bloom!
