Spring woodland wildflowers
The weather hasn’t been very spring-like, but that hasn’t stopped the annual spring woodland wildflower display.
These photos were taken April 6 - 8 when scouting for turkeys in Macoupin County and hiking through Carpenter Park State Nature Preserve in Sangamon County.
Don’t wait too long. They call them spring ephemerals for a reason.
They’ll soon retire to dormancy until next year.
