We arrived at the preserve around noon on Â Sunday April 16, Â 2017.
It was very warm, in the 80s. Â (some of the Mertensia was a bit wilted)
Nonetheless it was a glorious display of bluebells and Susquehanna Trillium. Â The blue Phlox was also Â putting on quite a show in the middle of the trail. Â We ate our lunch of Wawa sandwiches at the bench near what we call the Trout Lily Â trail. Â There were lots of people out which was adding to the social aspect of our experience.
We climbed a new trail we had never been on before, Â One that carried us all the way up to the top of the hill near the front of the main trail. We were afforded a fantastic view of the Susquehanna River and we also got to see lots of beautiful blooming bluebells up there. Â We also found some white Trout Lily.
We were very careful the whole day to not step on any wildflowers.
Most of these pictures were taken with a Lumix LX7 Â except the selfie which was taken with an iPhone 6 Plus.
