Believe it or not, I leave for NY and begin the hiking season leading to my completion of the North Country Trail in (YIKES) 6 days. I spent the day working on food, and various other projects that need to be completed before I leave. I'm really tired tonight, and hoping that's just an anomaly, or it's going to be a really long summer.
I'm just going to share a few more pretty spring pictures. First is the always-lovely Marsh Marigold (incidentally, also called the king cup, as in the poem from yesterday). Caltha palustris
Next is a cousin, another member of the Ranunculaceae Family (Buttercups). There are over 300 members of this family. This is the swamp buttercup Ranunculus septentrionalis.
Last... just some lovely red maple leaves. They will be green in another week.
