Spring Beauties

My return trip to Midcounty Park last month didn't disappoint me.

There were drifts of trilliums along the trail, including some with a darker pink coloration.


I was thrilled to find these jack-in-the-pulpits (Arisaema sp.).

The jacks with purple stripes are my favorite.

But my favorite find on this trip had to be the showy orchis (Orchis spectabilis, or Galearis spectabilis).

And there weren't any toads this time, either.
