Our workday this morning was turned into a little work and a lot of time hunting for wildflowers. 

From the work perspective the Roadside Specimen Garden was weeded,  A "Cherokee Chief" Dogwood was planted, euonymus was pulled as well as other invasives and general cleaning of the TRWA grounds was accomplished.  Thanks to: Theresa, Scott, Allison, Rodney, Martha, Charlotte and Mark.

Wildflowers are coming up fast and furious.  The clearing of the invasives last year is making a huge difference in the number of wildflowers, the most that has been seen in quite a while.  Also the spicebushes are starting to bloom and we have a couple of blooms on the red maple that was planted last year.  It is a great time to go and explore.  Be on the lookout for: Trillium, VA Bluebells, Bloodroot, Toothwort, Ragwort, Columbine and lots more everyday.
