We are definitely back in New England…. And light sweatshirt weather…..very different from our last few months in SW Florida where we walk along the beach or the lush trails.
I was delighted to see the plants just starting up along the parklands trails. Many fiddlehead ferns uncurled in the swampy edges of the pond. The pair of ladies slipper orchids were tucked behind a stump- the only pair I saw during my hour walk. They demurely posed for a photo.
Although I searched for a Jack in the pulpit- a spring guest that often shares the same path- Jack was hiding from me today. The window is short for these spring divas so I will look carefully during the next few walks.
