Flowers here, there, and everywhere!

Hi AT folks!

The signs of Spring have arrived at the northern reaches of the Appalachian Trail in New Hampshire and Maine. Although it will still be some time before we see blossoms above tree line, we are starting to see flowers of Yellow Trout Lily (Erythronium americanum) and Red Trillium (Trillium erectum) at lower elevations. Bluebead Lily (Clintonia borealis), Canada Mayflower (Maianthemum canadense) and Hobblebush (Viburnum lantanoides) are starting to bud.

Meanwhile, Canada Mayflower (Maianthemum canadense) is blooming in Virginia and Hobblebush (Viburnum lantanoides) is blooming in Pennsylvania. Painted Trillium (Trillium undulatum) is blooming from North Carolina to southern New Hampshire.

I have not yet seen flowering Bluebead Lily (Clintonia borealis). Perhaps you will see the first!

Happy Spring and thank you for contributing your observations from the AT corridor!
