About Today’s Photo:
While out on a wildflower walk up at the Camel’s Hump Nordic Ski Area yesterday, I came across a motherlode of sharp-lobed hepatica. Dozens of blossoms were blooming along the trail, and keeping good company as well with trout lilies, blue cohosh, and spring beauties. I’ve dubbed the place “Wildflower Junction”!
