March and April are the most beautiful months in Virginia. Relative humidity is low, the spring ephemeral wildflowers are blooming and the bugs aren’t out yet….except for the ticks. Here are some of the things I’ve seen this month.
These are trout lilies. It’s very unusual to find them in eastern Virginia.
Oh deer…there’s a fungus among us.
A nice loblolly pine stand that was thinned a few years ago.
Running Cedar and Christmas Fern
