Spring Beauties

Spring beauties blooming in the Huntington Town Forest

Spring beauties are literally carpeting the ground in the upper reaches of the soon-to-be-new Huntington Town Forest in Huntington Center. There are at least 7 species of spring ephemeral wildflowers blooming right now up there, and I highly recommend a hike this weekend!

A close look at a daffodil

Our daffodils have finally decided that it’s safe to bloom. We have several plantings of various colors around our property along with some volunteers that have popped up here and there amongst what becomes the “tall grass” of our front field where they’re beginning to naturalize. A close-in view of the business bits of this blossom clearly shows the central stigma and the pollen coated anthers.
