A Sampler of Summer Woodland Wildflowers

Thankfully, sunshine appears to be mentioned more frequently in the days ahead.  That seems much more appropriate since summertime should be sunny!

I continued my inventory of 100 Acre Wood in the Town of Malta on this somewhat humid but gloriously sunny Sunday.  The summer session of blooming wildflowers is just underway.  While the number of species that will begin blooming (particularly in area woodlands) will now begin to decline and be less overall in comparison to those that bloomed this spring, it is still worth your time to trek through a forest near you to observe the variety of species and colors.

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