When we weren’t hiking, our friends drove us around so we could explore the Great Smoky Mountains National Park by car.
Beyond the Trilliums and Trout Lilies, Mt. Cuba Center was bursting with a multitude of spring blooms, mostly ephemerals. Below you’ll find just some of the many species we found (some of the IDs are shakier than others, corrections are always appreciated).
So I never did tell you about the time Judy and I motored down the Skyline Drive in Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains, did I? This was back in late April, after visiting friends near Baltimore and then Tammy of Casa Mariposa in northern Virginia.
