A Walk in the Woods

Yesterday, some of us visited Garden in the Woods. The weather was damp and a bit rainy so I didn't take too many pictures, but I'll share some with you.

Here is a little rockery, probably quite sunny if the sun were out

A close up of the pasque flower - I can't grow these in my heavy soil, but they are so pretty

I also admired this little fern - Polypodium Virginianium or Rock Polypody

This streamside beauty is Veratrum Viride or White Hellebore - the leaves were quite striking - not sure if you can see the striped quality. Another habitat I can't offer in my yard, but I'm glad I can admire them here.

Lucky you to be able to go there! I've always wanted to visit that garden. Thanks for the pictures - are there more from you or your companions on the visit...?

These are a lovely walk, Wendy. You did great close-ups too; I never would have thought it was rainy there.

Have to visit for sure one day.

Love it!

Wendy, I would have loved to see that garden too. Thanks for sharing. I would love to develope more of a woodland garden here. But I have enough to take care of by myself already. I do enjoy what mother nature does on her own though. Norma

Hmmm... Wendy, methinks there is another really great shot I recall you taking, but I don't see it in the above offering. I think it was from a soggy area?

Note to self: next time we meet for an outing we MUST have a group photo to document the trip!

Ah yes, the Orontium aquaticum or Golden Club - very rare in our area...we were lucky to see this little gem.

Wow...what a neat place Wendy! And how fun to have a "girl's get together". I bet that was a lot of fun! Are the pink flowers shooting stars? That *is* a tall pasque flowers. Are you sure you can't grow pasque flowers? The red one is always a challenge here, weak growing and no multiplying, but the purple one multiplies here like crazy. I don't know what the soil is like in MA, but soils tend to be pretty heavy here in Illinois...I think you need to give it a try! :-) P.S. That fern is cool...I love ferns! Thanks for sharing this with us! Ei
