    Default Woods Walkin and Unwindin

    At the end of a long week, I look forward to getting into the woods, helps me get right with the world again. Time is sometimes an issue, so I can't get as deep into the woods as I'd like. Fortunately, there is a patch of woods across from my house, and I've been exploring it quite a bit. Spring's coming, things are popping up. Anyone know what these first two flowers/plants are?




    Love trees with big exposed roots, expect them to walk away!

    Thanks for looking!

    the top flower is a Trillium plant and I'm not certain about the lower pic but I'd like to know also, as I saw some while on a hike today. Glad your getting out there!

    The white ones look like some Anemone blossoms, but I don't think so if those are the leaves pictured, at least not the anemone around here.

    Further web searching leads me to think maybe Hepatica nobilis. Google some pics and sites, and see if you think so too. (apparently Hepatica is a sub of Anemone or related somehow)

    Here's a close looking pic identified as Hepatica.

    Default plant ID

    The top plant is red trillium (Trillium erectum) also known as "stinking Willie" or "wet-dog trillium" for its funky odor.

    The bottom plant is Sharp-lobed hepatica (Hepatica acutiloba) aka liverleaf.

    Nice outing! I know exactly what you mean by "get(ting) right with the world again."
    Bill Bryson: A grizzly may chew on a limp form for a minute or two but generally will lose interest and shuffle off. With black bears, however, playing dead is futile, since they will continue chewing on you until you are considerably past caring. It is also foolish to climb a tree because black bears are adroit climbers and…you will simply end up fighting the bear in a tree,
