 It is officially spring today! I haven't been down in the woods for a while, so went to see what is happening, even though it was a little rainy.
 I had read something by a naturalist talking about the flowers of the red huckleberry, so I looked for those. Above is the blue huckleberry's flower - very sweet. But I didn't see flowers on the reds, until suddenly I realized those little nubby things are the flowers! So different, but once I noticed them, I saw them everywhere!
 Skunk cabbage is also making an appearance.
 And the salmonberry is popping with it's bright fushcia pink!
