Mariton: Wildflowers Are Blooming

I had been a little worried about what flowers would be around for the Wildflower Walk on Saturday. We are a little behind on blossoms, but during the night on Friday, several things began blooming and sprouting, so we found lots of things. It was a fun walk with a lot of enthusiasm for everything we discovered.
One has to get down on the ground to view the Wild Ginger flowers that are usually hidden by foliage. It is a very interesting flower.
This White Trillium was prime for our walk.
I had warned participants that the flower walk, could easily digress into a bird walk and offered people our loaner binoculars. They were appreciated. We saw several warblers, (a few that we couldn’t identify). This Black-throated Green Warbler posed out in the open and fairly low alongside the trail.
