Here are some of our favorites that we found.
Jack in the Pulpit. These are endangered species in Maine (and parts are poisonous) so leave them where you find them. If you gently lift the middle folded leaf, there is a little 'Jack in the pulpit' standing!
Purple Trillium. These too are endangered in Maine. My grandfather always called them Stinkin' Benjamins. They have a stinky smell!
Just because it is cute-Squirrel Hideout
I can't find my picture of a pink lady's slipper anywhere! Darn it! I found these nice pictures here. These are native to Maine, and are not "technically" on the endangered list in Maine, but they are in several states (and maybe should be here, considering the fact that many Mainers have probably never seen one-my two cents worth).
Along the walking path.
Not from the same walk, but Maine Wild Blueberry blossoms this time of year. In August, they will be beautiful blue berries full of antioxidants and delicious to eat!
There you have it. Today is a great day to get outside and see what you can find.
