Take Time To Smell The Wildflowers

May 12, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

 

When my kids were young,  our family looked forward to the wildflowers of spring,  Our large yard in Racine County had wild violets, lily of the valley and some trilliums that made their appearance every year.  We would also walk out to some wooded areas near our home or went up to Whitnall Park to enjoy the wild flowers. 

This was definitely one thing I missed when I moved to my condo in Franklin.  But much to my surprise,  a walk down the Oak Leaf bike trail between Drexel Ave. and Puetz, I came across a wooded area that was filled with wild flowers, which brought back many good memories.  

This past week, I found Wood Violets, Trilliums, Blood Root, May Apples, Marsh Marigolds,  Trout Lilies, Wood Anemone, Spring Beauty and  Hepatica.    The Lily of the Valley will be blooming soon.
