Hmmm. Hard to say which I like best but the morel(?) is lovely. The trilliums are so pretty they remind me of those growing in the Michigan woods when I was a child. But the best from a photographic standpoint has to be the snowstorm. It is hard to capture something dynamic like that and the contrast between the greens and white is so unusual it is really something.

Thank you for sharing...I almost feel like I got out in the woods there now too. Great to see the trillium and the mayapple patch...but I especially like the emerging oak leaves.
I am madly in love with the Wildwood Preserve--and my long-suffering spouse doesn't mind.

Wow! You're all making me work especially hard this month! I have downloaded all the pix I'm choosing for the final consideration folder! Are there any more entries out there?

It's great that you have such a place to visit...and lucky you that your spouse doesn't mind!

There used to be a beautiful park full of wildflowers where I used to live--well...the park is still there, but I'm not around to visit it. We used to walk there a lot when we first got together...Jeff learned to recognize and name a lot of wildflowers. I never thought of him as "long suffering", but I do have to wonder, as I used to quiz him! Funny how he doesn't seem to wanna walk with me much anymore.

The robin nest is on top of our electric meter - at least she has a clear view...
Nice.

Beautiful morel...and COOL snow storm with all of that GREEN.

Yeah, what she said. That is what I wanted to say, but I didn't have the words.

Thanks. I had never seen so many mayapples before, but the woods were full of them along most of the three-mile trail.

I love a nice big patch of Mayapples! I'd love to have a colony or three here. ...at least one that I can view from a path below, so I can see the flowers without bending down when I'm older--heck so I don't have to bend down NOW.
