The other day Michael and I took a walk in The Grove so I could get my fill of spring Ephemerals. The Grove is a National Historic Site nearby with a fantastic woodland full of wildflowers and some pretty amazing trees. The shagbark hickory (Carya ovata) leave me drooling every time I see them. I absolutely love ephemeral plants so late april/early May is botanical heaven for me. I just can’t get enough of these! There isn’t a whole ton else to say about them so I’ll just leave you with some pretty pictures of some (mostly) native wildflowers.
