What's Blooming?

On a nice sunny day this week, I decided to go for a walk on the Gorge and Pipeline trails to see what's blooming these days. I saw lots of these Mountain Sandwort growing in the gravel by the pipeline. They are very tiny. Each Petal is somewhat heartshaped and they have 2 or 3 flowers on each stalk.

Crackerberries ( You may Know them as Bunch Berries ma'am.) are in flower in the woods.
A few late blooming May Flowers. Most of them are gone now. A couple of weeks ago you could smell their sweet perfume in the air.

There are lots of Pin Cherry trees in bloom.

..and wild strawberries a plenty.

Pretty much all the wild flowers that are in season right now are white. I am looking forward to seeing some Pink and Yellow Lady Slippers next month.
