New to us was a strange tri-leafed plant, who knew what until we found yellow flowers further along our trails.
Searching our handy wildflower identification book, we found out this was a "Trout Lily", also known as a yellow snowdrop, or yellow fawn lily. It looks like there are six petals but in fact there are only three split to look like six.
I was pleased to find out it is also a perenial, so it will regrow year after year upon our forest floor.
Meanwhile, there are little things each day to capture the attention of two little ones, be it critters, creatures, insects, possibilities or just one very slithery slimy green snake with an orange stripe down the center of his back who caused night time dreamy walks this past week.
I just love when something new inspires a few moments of childlike fun and this week this is what we found...
