You would be more than welcome. Sherba and I are going to Floracliff for an organized wildflower walk on Saturday,so I am hoping to see some Erythronium in flower. Floracliff is a State Nature Preserve, not too far from Garrard Co. I'll post shots of what I find but apparently I missed Trillium nivale by two weeks. Ah well!!! There's always next year.
Good to hear from you. Keep in touch

but we certainly have as much variety of super woodland plants.

Indeed. Beautiful Hepaticas! And super scenes too! That "anglin falls" is simply wonderful!
Go on with pics, please! :)

You know, the strange thing is that whenever folks "do" the USA, they inevitably go west....and yet most everything that we see growing wild here, ends up on the showbenches back home. I am amazed that so few people 'do' east.

There is utter magic in the eastern North American woodlands that I have not seen matched elsewhere. After all, this is the botanic strength of this area of the world-one which was once solid forest!!!!

For the past many weeks, as I have been obsessing over real estate listings in the mountains of western Canada, a picture of spring in my eastern Canadian woods keeps sneaking into all the spaces between asking price and size of acreage. I see the drifts of Trillium, Erythronium, Sanguinaria, Asarum, Ferns and I become homesick before I have even left......

so many species....so little time
