April walk at FLCC

I was anxious to see some skunk cabbage blossoms and found plenty on a recent walk through the woods at FLCC along with plenty more to see and enjoy. - Laura

Bloodroot
This is a Bloodroot blossom that got pulled out by a passing runner.  I share in order to visualize why Bloodroot has that name while encouraging you to show this picture instead of pulling Bloodroot out of the ground. Bloodroot is a protected species in NYS.

Northern Blue Cohosh (Caulophyllum giganteum) Thanks to Kim B of Sonnenberg Gardens for identifying this for me!
