Wildflowers in a local deciduous forest
The local forests so lovely this time of year. So many wildflowers are in bloom!
Largest square: a red admiral butterfly sitting on a trillium bud. Did you know that red admirals migrate? They do and they are back, at least a few are. This week we spotted them in two different woods, one in East Gwillimbury and the other just south of the town line.
Moving clockwise: bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis), trout lily (Erythronium americanum), barren strawberry (Waldsteinia fragaroides), early meadow-rue (Thalictrum dioicum) and squirrel corn (Dicentra canadensis).
FYI: I include botanical names because so many common names refer to different plants.
