A few photos from the last week in April...

Also called Wake Robin, or Purple Trillium, Red Trillium blooms in rich woods and sometimes looks pink or salmon-colored.

The 8-inch-long, onion-scented leaves of Wild Leeks will wither away before the plant produces a spike of white flowers in June.

In early spring, the bulbs of Wild Leeks are still small and delicious as a wild  edible. Rich woods.

May Apple's other common name is Mandrake. Its umbrella-shaped leaves can cover a forest floor for acres at this time of year.

May Apple's nodding white flower will produce a large lemon-like berry later in spring.
