03/06/2010 The Pocket at Pigeon Mountain

Add common chickweed to Hepatica and Harbinger of Spring as the wildflowers in bloom in this late-starting season at The Pocket on Pigeon Mountain.  There is a lot of foliage pushing up, including the start of baby leaves of Trout Lily.  A huge area of beautiful Hepatica are blooming along the base of the bluff above the horse trail.

I can’t get enough of the beautiful sharp-lobed hepatica this spring, and not just because it’s almost the only thing blooming…
