Spring Wildflower Sampler – Part 3

The return to sunny skies and warmer temps prompted me to go trailside to continue my wildflower inventories.  I decided to return to the Settlers Hill Natural Area in the Town of Clifton Park, which is comprised of two different segments –

  1. East trail: Beginning at Gloucester Street, this trail segment heads south across Clifton Park Center Road, Michelle Drive, Waverly Place, Summerlin Drive and Avenue of the Oaks (twice) before terminating a short distance south of 4 Leaf Manor.
  2. West trail: Beginning at either access point off Addison Way or Fairhill Road, these two access trails will intersect and then this trail segment heads west across Moe Road before generally heading south and terminating at Wildflower Drive. .

What a glorious day to be outside!

This is a sampling of what I observed today –
