Wildflowers on Display

The Joan Glidden butterfly garden at the cabin is beginning to bloom. Aquilegia anadensis, red columbine, have flowered. Lilies of the Valley and violets are a couple others showing flowers.
Trientalis borealis (star flower) is frequent along the asphalt path between the cabin and the gazebo. It is a short plant with a white flower consisting of seven pointed petals in, you guessed it, a star pattern. You might also note that horsetails, a plant that looks like a miniature pine tree, are starting to grow through the asphalt especially near the gazebo. Oh well, you can't fool Mother Nature.
