After the rain

The recent spate of beautiful spring weather has brought out a suite of spring wildflowers that will bloom througout May. Look for seepy dolomite cliffs and boulders for the intricate flowers of columbines and Heuchera. Buttercups (Ranunculus fascicularis, pictured) can be found all over in dry woodlands, while white violets (Viola striata) are normally seen in moist creekbottoms and more mesic conditions.
