While walking in the woods in East Montpelier yesterday, my friend Wendy and I came across this wildflower. Using Kate Carter's book Wildflowers of Vermont we learned that it is dwarf ginseng. We didn't see this flower at all last week when we walked the same trails. It's great to see how the wildflowers and ferns change from week to week. Here are some other views in the woods.
My favorite color - spring green!
