I've got a little pie-shaped piece of woods of about 3 acres down across the driveway from the house that doesn't get much attention. Discovered a couple neat things down there. These are the first wildflowers to blossom here. The "painted" variety will be out a little later.

Scenes like these makes the three acres look like a nice palce to pass a quiet moment or two now and then. Just might be worth saving.

Those are pretty Les, what kind of flowers are they?

Those are purple trilliums. AKA "skunkflowers", at least by us when we were kids, as their smell is not pleasant.
The painted trilliums are smaller and mostly white with a streak of purple in the petals. The tree behind it is a yellow birch.
I've also seen large white ones when I used to go to Fort Drum, NY every year about this time but I've never seen them growing around here.

Thanks Les, Dillon and I were reading the posts and he said: Those are pretty Mom, what kinda flowers are they? I told him I'd never seen any like it so we'd just have to ask and find out : )

As you can see, things are just starting to green up in the woods here. These are fiddleheads. Some people think they're good to eat but I never figured they were much to bother with. Salmoneye probably likes them.
