Last week I ventured into the woods near the Sourland Mountains in search of wildflowers, more specifically hepatica. I didn't find any. The rains on Monday and Tuesday kept me close to home and out of the woods but today I returned to look. I chose a trail, the Rockhopper Trail in Lambertville, where another area resident, Mary Anne Borge, had mentioned seeing them.
The trail was muddy and sloshy but Bhavna and I continued along and after 30 minutes I was rewarded with many specimens of Hepatica.
I really need this project to keep my sanity. Thank you, Jeff Sinon.
