Never while anything is left of me shall this camp be forgotten. It has fairly grown into me, not merely as memory pictures, but as part and parcel of mind and body alike. -John Muir

specimen: Narcissus pseudonarcissus

Wild Daffodil
(Narcissus pseudonarcissus)

We've been wandering around in the woods alot lately...hunting for morels. We have so many pictures to share with you! First off, as I already mentioned in the last post, we had daffodils everywhere here. They have finished for the season, as is the Coltsfoot, but we were fortunate enough to have them along the edge of the road during their season. It ended up that we had two different kinds...

a trumpet.

and a double.


Non-native. Blooms in Spring. Found here in woods and grassland. Also know as Lent Lily.

Some yards we pass on the way into town were lucky enough to be filled during the early Spring. And while wandering through the woods you could also find patches here and there...usually near old foundations. Daffodils are not even from the states. It really makes you wonder how long ago these were planted and by whom.
