April Wildflowers at Fort Hill

I was delighted at how many species of wildflower were in bloom at Fort Hill this past weekend. We saw many of the same flowers that appeared in April Wildflowers at Lake Katharine State Nature Preserve. So rather than posting duplicate flower photos, I’ll just post ones that were newly seen at Fort Hill.

    1. Thank you, Sheila! I saw quite a bit of Jack-in-the-Pulpit this weekend, too. Some of them have purplish stripes. I’ll probably be trying to sneak a photo of one of these into a post soon. 🙂

  1. So lovely!! A rainbow of wildflowers…. I have so many of those unidentifieds. 🙂 You do a FAR better job in naming them. I’m trying, I’m trying….

    1. Thanks, FeyGirl. I recently joined a Facebook Group called, “Ohio’s Wildflowers And Flora – Native, Alien, and Escaped”. It’s been a big help to me in learning to identify the flowers that I see while hiking.

  2. beautiful photos , got a chuckle out of “unidentified flowery thing”.It always impresses me how much of a strong statement even the smalll flowers make. Thank you – such a relief from these leftover snow squalls we are having!

  3. The most beautiful wildflower photography I have seen. Crisp, clear and so realistic. I enjoy your blog so much.

    1. Patricia, thank you so much! I have a great, little, point-and-shoot camera for flower macros. If I can just keep my hands steady, the camera does the rest. I am glad you are enjoying our blog. I’ve enjoyed hearing from you. 🙂

    1. Thanks, beckarooney! I hope it does feel like spring where you are. Here in the U.S.A. we are having second most cold spring in our history, but it isn’t stopping the flowers where I live.
