Trillium hike

A few weeks ago, hiked with friends on a steamy Sunday along the Appalachian Trail in Virginia, near Thompson Wildlife Management Area, in search of trillium.  And we found more trillium than I've ever seen! Along with many other wildflowers.  Made it back to the car just as the skies opened up in a crazy downpour.

 The trail - the white blaze signifies the Appalachian Trail - was flanked on both sides by fields of trillium.

Found it this way!

Sherwood Gardens

A few weeks ago checked out Sherwood Gardens in Baltimore.  The tulips were 
very much on their way out but the azaleas were very happy.  
Lisa and I relaxed, I took photos and Elena climbed trees.
