I enjoyed my first walk in the woods this Spring and it did not disappoint, the flowers are well and truly out and it reminds me that if I cannot be living on a farm in Italy this is not such a bad place to be.
This time of year you can see all of the wild berries in bloom. This reminds me that I must be better about remembering where these spots are so I can come back and harvest when they are ripe and full of fruit. I saw Salmonberries, Huckleberries, Oregon Grape, Elderberries, Salal and many more.
I also saw some amazing wildflowers as well. One of the most special Springtime plants we have here, in my opinion, is the trillium. I was lucky enough to see many of these and, as you see from the pictures, I was able to see a lovely pink trillium as well. I saw lovely patches of yellow viola and wild dicentra.
When you walk slowly and look closely you see such beautiful moss and ferns. The Pacific Northwest is truly a special place...
