We also spotted a Cabbage White (Pieris rapae) and either a Clouded or an Orange Sulphur Butterfly but they were both two flighty for me to snap a good photo. We did see one dandelion but other than that I have no idea what they were feeding on.
Next we found two interesting seed pods. One was a Seedbox (Ludwigia alternifolia). The Seedbox had a hole in the end for the tiny seeds could be dispersed. It is in the Primrose family and has yellow flowers which bloom from June to August. This was the first winter weed plant that I took notice of and it has been my favorite ever sense.
The other one I believe is a Wild Indigo (Baptisia australis).
Moving on to the small stream we found early Skunk Cabbage (Symplocarpus foetidus) just peaking its head above the water. I don’t remember seeing them before March but there they were. I love the color in these unusual plants.
I stopped for a moment to take a photo of this Ceramic Fungus (Xylobolus frustulatus).
We saw some more interesting things but I will tell you about them tomorrow.
