About Today’s Photo:
We took a bike ride along the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail between Jeffersonville and Johnson the other day. Among the profuse number of wildflowers blooming were these lovely Canada lilies (Lilium canadense). These stately lilies can grow to 3′-4′ tall and I saw several stalks sporting more than six or seven blossoms at a time.
