When I say after I mean the 8 hour break before the next wave of storms. We basically ran out for a hike yesterday and now it is back to lightning, thunder and flash floods. Sadly the lightning kept me away from photographing the always short pink phase of spring Wildflowers. Purple Wild Garlic, Indian Tobacco, Venus Looking Glass plus Smooth Petunias, yellow Cutleaf Coreopsis and Hairy Hawkweed with tiny white Partridge Berry (Partridgeberry) paint the trail edges now. Red, tan, yellow, orange and beige Gilled Fungi have blossomed pushing up through the forest floor debris and moss.
Love to ALL!
