Mid-April Update, Potomac Gorge


miterwort, aka bishop’s cap
Mitella diphylla


The wildflowers continue to start blooming about two weeks earlier than last year. I’m told that twinflower is done and gone to seed already. Bloodroot is done, too, and so is cutleaf toothwort, though slender toothwort is just starting. Trout lilies are done in some locations, but still going strong in others. Virginia bluebells are waning.

Everything else I’ve posted about in the last few updates is still going strong. To that list, add:
