    Next we head to Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden & Bird Sanctuary, the oldest public wildflower graden in the U.S. 15 acres of woodland, swamp, and prairie.

    I didn't get many pics becuase the batteries were dieing and I forgot to bring a fresh set. So here are a few of the best shots.


    Rue Anemone (Anemonella thalictroides)


    Purple Trillium (Trillium erectum)


    Yellow Trout Lily (Erythronium americanum)


    Skunk Cabbage (Symplocarpus foetidus)


    Wild Ginger (Asarum canadense)

    Nice pics. Be careful on quaking bogs. CP'er have been know to just disappear in them.

    By the way, where are you? Upstate NY?

    lol, The broadwalk is starting to sink in afew spots, but I'm not too concerned.

    Theodore Wirth is a 500+ acre park in the middle of minneapolis (The jr. high school that I went to is no more then 20 feet from the eastern edge of the park). the bog is small it's maybe 1/2 mile to walk around outside the moat.

    NY has nothing on the peatlands of northern Minnesota, I hope to show more pics troughtout the summer.
