I am pretty sure I say this every year, but although I really love fall and profess it to be my favorite, there is something particularly magical about this time of year as the woods turn green and the wildflowers bloom.

This morning I headed out for a nice 6.5 miles in the Cathance, finding many flowers along the way. Bunchberry, violets, bluets, blue bead lilies, painted trillium, the first ladyslippers in bloom I've seen this year, fringed polygala, starflowers, rhodora and wild cala lilies blooming in the Heath, and false lily of the valley awash on the forest floor. Makes me very happy indeed.
