Wildflowers Abound!

Posted by | June 19, 2012 | Filed under: Program Reports

On Sunday, botanist Boot Boutwell led fourteen enthusiastic participants through field, forest, and bog to explore late spring wildflowers. It was a picture perfect day and we all learned new natural history and identification techniques while observing myriad beautiful species! Below is just a sampling.

  1. Bladder Campion, Silene cucubalus
  2. Dragon's Mouth, Arethusa bulbosa
  3. Grass-Pink, Calopogon puchellus
  4. Blue-eyed Grass, Sisyrinchium angustifolium
  5. Common Milkweed with Monarch caterpillar, Asclepias syriaca
  6. Eileen Willard observes Dragon's Mouth closely in the bog
  7. A Milk Snake crosses our path
  8. Boot Boutwell with the group, including several photographers
