A Sampler of Spring Woodland Wildflowers – Part 3

Today, I returned to 100 Acre Wood in the Town of Malta to continue my wildflower inventory.  Despite the lack of any significant rainfall in weeks, the parade of spring woodland wildflowers continues.

I hope you enjoy the continuation of this sampler of what is in bloom this week in a nearby woodland; take a look.
