Sunday Stroll at Hawkwood

While continuing my wildflower inventory at Anchor Diamond Park at Hawkwood in the Town of Ballston, I was pleased to discover that the Stonewall Trail is now fully open once again, thanks to the installation of two new bridges near its east end.

THANK YOU volunteers and trail stewards – ALL of your many improvements to ALL of the trails are greatly appreciated!

In celebration of all this “newness,” I am pleased to add this destination to my list of places on my Area Nature Preserves, Parks and Trails page.  Please check it out.

During my visit today, I observed the following blooms –

White Wood Aster

Pilewort

Bulb-bearing Water Hemlock

Common Dodder (white blooms on yellow vine attached to the green plant, which is Spotted Jewelweed) – read more about this parasitic plant.

Happy trails!
