April Flowers

Marsh marigolds by the Portage River below the Boys' Dam.


Trillium on the banks above the river.

Mayapples unfurl with an odd little knob on top. The flat brown lentil like seeds are from the redbud.

New redbud blooms, Portage River in the background.

April 2009

Skunk-cabbages in bloom on April 8, and the marsh marigold buds are opening on the 18th in the marsh by the Portage River. Some are blooming in front of the old horse-drawn piece of farm equipment that is stuck in the mud.

April began with snow; this picture of the river and Boys Dam through the trees taken on April 6.
