My wife and I took a short walk in the North Chickamauga Creek Pocket Wilderness (now managed by Tennessee’s Cumberland State Park; I think it is now named the North Chickamauga State Natural Area) near Soddy-Daisy today. This is a lovely walk along the North Chickamauga Creek; nothing real steep for the first half mile or so. Lots of wildflowers and a beautiful creek to boot. Here are photos of a few of the wildflowers that are blooming.
There were also some buttercups, common blue violets, blue phlox, and ragwort blooming along the trail, and a buckeye tree was about to bloom. Redbud was also beginning.
