Enchanted Forest 4-16-21

Photos by Jamie, Kay and Liz

Once again, Enchanted Forest lived up to its name on a beautiful sunny Friday.  Ten of us -- Sunny, Mike, Rich, Margita,  Elisabeth, Darryl, Jamie and newcomers Kay and my sister Edie were greeted with carpets of Indian Warriors and Shooting Stars under the pines. 

On the meadow loop trail Pussy's ears/Tolmei's mariposa lily (Sunny's favorite!),  Woodland star, Hounds tongue, Shelton's violet and Prairie violet, Henderson's saxifrage, Purple larkspur/Delphinium, Hall's desert parsley,Blue dicks appeared in profusion as well as our new tiny friend True Baby stars in dark pink and white that Collette has introduced us to.  Buckbrush ceonothus, Whiteleaf manzanta, and Madrone were also in full bloom.

Back in the forest along the trickling stream--evidence of a very dry year-- were hundreds of Giant White Trillium or Wake Robin and some late season Fawn Lillys. Mike scored big time with an island of Western Bleeding Hearts and trilliums.  With all the oohing and aahing and picture taking and taking it all in, we didn't get very far, but distance is never the point.

The full list of flowers is below, plus I've attached a PDF of a complete list of flowers that we have seen on Enchanted Forest spring hikes for those of you who want to check out the trail on you own.  And don't forget you can always find photos of all our wildflowers on Dan's wonderful Wildflower Resource page.
