Spring, glorious spring

Spring wildflowers, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways: I love your bloodroots and Dutchman’s breeches, your Virginia bluebells and wild ginger, your shy violets and your May apples that look like little umbrellas. I love your trout lilies and Jack-in-the-pulpits and ferns, even though technically I guess ferns are not really flowers.

Last weekend I made my annual trek through McFarland Park, a Story County conservation area just north of Ames, to view the bounty of wild flowers blooming there. I was not disappointed.
