Looking for Stars in the Woods

A lovely walk at Pilgrim Heights in Truro the other day revealed all sorts of spring flower activity. All these Canada mayflowers (also known as false lily of the valley) are getting ready to bloom.If you enlarge this photo you will see hundreds of little plants with a rosette pattern to the leaves which means only one thing....
Soon all the star flowers will be in bloom!
Here is one little early bird. Most weren't even in bud yet. These little woodland flowers bloom before the canopy leafs in and this year it is a bit of a race. If you're out this week look for both the Canada mayflower and the star flowers. Many other woodland plants are also in bloom and we'll look at some of them later in the week.
