    Default belated Spring Thread 2013

    Been shirking my duties it seems ...... Took some shots while visiting the folks over Mother's Day.



    Ah how I miss hunting for these ...


    Been years since I last knew of a good "hunting ground" -- found this one in a neighbor's yard. Knowledge of prime morel territory is a closely guarded secret. (Seriously! I know of folks who have lamented that their own grandmother -- though she does share her bounty with them -- refuses to tell them where she finds them. They're just hoping she will leave detailed directions in her will.)

    Then there are my favorite springtime flowers -- trilliums.










    And I disturbed this fellow hollowing out a nest

    Then there are some of the more plebian, though still attractive spring flowers ...

    Great photos, Paul! Makes me homesick for the springtimes of my youth when I lived in a cooler area.

    Pavel, you are right, Trillium is a beautiful plant. Firts time I see images of this Genus. It doesn't appear in Europe. I've look for seeds, maybe I can grow it in my garden.

    May your seed search go well. Word of warning though -- if I recall correctly, trilliums grown from seed can take up to 10yrs to bloom. (Kind of makes orchids look downright speedy doesn't it? )

    i think right now is also the end of ramp (wild leek) season in michigan if you hurry..... yum!!!!!! i grew some on my balcony this spring, ate the leaves with scrambled eggs and stir fries a lot, but let most of them mature. i should check the bulbs now, mine have died back. i hope they summer over without dying on me.
