Thank you for the kind welcome, Summer! I'm new at this, so be gentle, dear readers.
I've been trekking through the back woods behind my complex the last few Sundays to see what's growing, budding and flowering. I thought I'd post a photo of this beautiful Mayapple for a start.
What I tend to see the most of though (it's amazing how successful a plant can be) is poison ivy. Remember the "leaves of three, let them be" saying? Pretty much holds true. I wear my fake rubber wellies out there and often gloves, too. But it doesn't deter me from enjoying the plants and trees. Hope to share more photos in the future.
