Wild Ginger is still blooming.

And, of course, the Trilliums are blooming, although the rain we've had knocked down a lot of them.

The Trout Lily (white and yellow) has finally bloomed. They're one of my favorite wildflowers.
|I love how the petals curl backwards.|
|See the bug on the stem?|
|Now, the bug is on the petals.|
|The flower is named after the mottled pattern on the leaves, which looks like the skin of a trout.|
I've been seeing Jack-in-the-Pulpit all over the Park, lately.
|For the first time, I saw Dutchman's Breeches this year. Both the flowers and foliage are lovely.|
As often happens when I'm photographing wildflowers, I encountered a Flower Crab Spider.
|Bellwort is everywhere.|
And I often find fungi, like this puffball.
|Love that lichen, too!|
