I enjoy the boardwalk between Brookside Gardens and Brookside Nature Center in the spring. Earlier this week the boardwalk was my short walk before by shift in the Wings of Fancy exhibit. There are many native plants in this area that are looking good this spring. The plants are growing luxuriantly at this point – many in bloom.
Clumps of columbine
Jack-in-the-pulpit (but they are green…sometimes hard to see)
Mayapples (the flower is sometimes hidden under the umbrella of leaves)
Skunk cabbage (with cypress knees poking up among the leaves)
Several kinds of ferns
Of course there are birds too….red-winged blackbirds are calling everywhere and robins are searching leaf mulch for a tasty worm!
It was a productive 10-minute photo shoot!
