Troutlily Fishing in Brooklyn Botanic

Wednesday night's Native Ephemerals class at Brooklyn Botanic deserves two posts, because I love any walk through this garden and a guided tour with Uli, its caretaker, is a real treat. From the delicate and tiny Troutlily, (Erythronium americanum) to the native Wild Bleeding Heart (Dicentra eximia) to up in the canopy with new Red Maple leaves waving, it's as awesome a time as any to take a slow walk through the Native Flora Garden, stopping and observing whatever catches the eye. There's always something to see and something to learn or just fall in love with.

Nice. I'm feeling like I should have a new adventure to see some of these in one of our parks. Maybe the Greenbelt.
