So, I went for a walk this evening in hopes of finding the Rattlesnake Plantain in bloom. I couldn't find it at all! Hunted all the places I see the leaves in spring, and found none, blooming or not. Maybe it's having a bad year.
Here's what I did find:
The Pere Marquette River- always a beautiful place.
Several puddles of Northern Maidenhair fern. One of my favorites.
A dark little toad, trying to hide. And if I'd showed you a longer shot you would have said he was pretty successful.
Light through the trees. I love scenes like this.
And one little pink mushroom. No idea what it is except cute.
I was walking the North Country Trail from Upper Branch Bridge to 40th St and back. About 3.5 miles total. I'm glad I waited till evening because it was pretty hot (for me) here today. Not bad in the evening, although I was still soaking wet when I got back to the car. (and no, I didn't fall in the river, haha!)
