In bloom: trout lily

This season's hottest place to see spring ephemeral wild flowers is Eberwhite Woods. Seriously, that place is is completely filled with trout lily (Erythronium americanum). These little guys, who get their common name from their mottled leaves, are just starting to bloom. I'd really recommend checking them out, the hillsides are covered with them:

  1. County Farm Park is a nice place for wildflowers too, as is Marshall Park.
