First spring ephemerals in Dunn Woods, 2016

IMG_9843

The first spring wildflowers poked up their heads in Dunn Woods during the week of February 22. There are several bunches of snow drops, aka Galanthus, often the first wild flowers to appear this year. I will be finding salt and pepper (harbinger of spring, Erigenia bulbosa) in the deeper woods soon! Below is a link to Kay Yatskievych‘s Flower Finder for Indiana Spring Wildflowers, the single best resource I have found for indenitying Indiana’s emphemerals. Happy hunting!

Cool Hand Luke was here!

Apparently Cool Hand Luke is still with us, at least in spirit, as two parking meter heads appeared in the woods this week? What was he thinking? Doesn’t he remember what happened las time?
