Wolf Creek Trout Lily Preserve

Wow!  If you like Trout Lilies (what’s not to like about Trout Lilies?) then… Wow!  Wolf Creek Trout Lily Preserve is home to the densest population of Trout Lilies in the world.  Arrive there at peak bloom – usually early February, but with the cold late winter we’ve had in the southeast, mid-February this year – and you too will be amazed at the carpet of yellow blossoms in a 40 acre patch of forest along the slopes down to Wolf Creek in Grady County, Georgia.

Cultivated Columbine #Nativeplants from last year’s @NatureCenter Plant Sale

On our trip down to The Pocket last weekend, the Columbine plants I saw were only a few inches high with some of their early leaves – no flower buds yet forming.  The plant we got at last year’s Native Plant Sale at the Chattanooga Arboretum and Nature Center ( @NatureCenter on Twitter), however, is starting to bloom.  This picture is from today.
