Trip Report: June 15

I spent a lovely, warm Saturday adoring my land and its inhabitants.

Isn't it gorgeous?

The northern wood sorrel is blooming (Oxalis montana)

And the cucumber root's funny-looking flowers (Medeola virginiana)

As are the pink lady's-slipper orchids (Cypripedium acaule)

I was really excited to find blue flag irises in bud (Iris versicolor). They'll be gorgeous soon!

I also found this crazy-looking fungi. It was poking up all over in the swampy areas. I haven't figured out what it is yet.

I always go there intending to get a bunch of things done, like improving the bridge and laying out trails, and then all I manage to do is adore the land. Oh well :)
