Another Walk at Susie's Farm

Monday, April 21, we again explored to "see what we could see!" We didn't climb mountains, but we did climb over a few things, crossed a ditch by walking across a fallen log, etc. :-)

These are some of the things we saw this week... a nice contrast to our walk two weeks ago, as well as a visual display of the entrance of Spring!


Do you know what this is?
(an unfurling May Apple)

Dutchman's Breeches
Trout Lily
Virginia Bluebells, budded
Do you think this was a raccoon??
Toad Trillium
Spring Beauties
Something Beautiful

Toad trillium on a diet,
standing next to one that's not (on a diet).
Plus a few Trout Lily leaves

Mr. McGregor's Daughter correctly identified this as Cardamine.
Actually, it's Cardamine bulbosa.

And this as Hydrophyllum virginiana, "Virginia Waterleaf"
It's flowers will be very lovely.

The biggest mystery of all...
I think it's a marble for a Native American child.

Last, but never least...
a visit with the goats.
(Apologies - I've forgotten this sweet lass' name)
We had a great time and anticipate our return before long!
(Just to check the progress and watch for new plants.)

I'm glad you enjoyed it! I have to post about this week's walk, yet. :-)

Is the white flowered plant a Cardamine? The second mystery plant definitely is Hydrophyllum virginiana.

MMD, You are amazing! How did you know them?? Both your IDs were correct! :-)
