The single nicest time of year to go for a walk in the woods is in early May, before the leaves (and the blackflies and mosquitoes) come out. A rash of early wildflowers, the spring ephemerals, blooms before the canopy of leaves closes off their light. We hit the Bruce Trail nearby twice last week on warm sunny spring days, and the photos here are the result.
Red Trillium, one of my favourites
Dog-tooth Violet or Trout Lily
The wierd purple leaves and tiny flower of the Blue Cohosh, which will soon turn a normal green colour.
