Spring Ephemerals in the Forest

“The fleeting interval between late-April and mid-May, after the snow has melted yet before the canopy of leaves overhead is fully deployed, is when many of our native woodland flowers, such as trillium and trout lily, find their brief moment in the sun.”

– Ned Swanberg, Northern Woodlands
Spring ephemerals provide early pollen for insects. They are also delightful finds on an early spring walk in the woods. 
Here are some spring ephemeral finds along Winnakee trails this year:
