Oh thank-you so much! we aren't as diverse, but soon we will have half of them in bloom! It gives me a warm fuzzy feeling! Time to skip into the woods...carefully.

Wow, what beautiful pictures! I recently took an herbal walk for a class I'm enrolled in. We found plants such as hawthorne, mullein, St John's wort, and jewelweed. It was surprising how many different kinds of plants there were around me, I never paid much attention before.
