Last Saturday we drove back out to Johnson Woods to see if the Trillium had started blooming yet.
It ended up being a fairly warm day, and before we were all the way around the 1 mile boardwalk LittleJ had to take off his boots because his feet were hot.
He also convinced LittleE that he was "SO TIRED" and needed a ride!
Here is the largest patch of Trillium, protected by the wire enclosure so the deer won't eat them. Aren't they beautiful? Many of them still weren't open yet.
These are Mayapples. They look like little umbrellas with small pink flowers that bloom underneath.
This one, I believe, is a Swamp Buttercup.
LittleE is showing off one of the larger trees in the woods.
I love walking in the woods and I'm so glad everyone humors me and comes along!
