21 April 2013 Trees and Hepatica
We have a high opening in our land where we want to mix in dogwoods near the edge of the clearing. I had picked up the trees a week prior so this morning was planting time. Hopefully these dogwoods will eventually ring the opening with spring blossoms. After that, it was time to head into the woods and look for hepatica. We were too early on our last visit and hoped to find plants still in bloom. We were still too early. The flowers were still a week or so away from opening, but we were happy to find a number of plants ready to bloom. On our way down the path, Ali spotted a nice rock with some interesting fossils.
