‘Received this a.m. a notice about a post on Spring Ephemerals by Kate MacQuarrie on her PEI Untamed Blog. Kate’s blog has lots of natural history stuff relevant to NS.

Kate’s piece on spring ephemerals reminded me of an “article” I wrote in 2012 for the old website on “The True Spring Ephemerals in Nova Scotia“; it lists also common Early Summer Forbs. Photos are by Jack Pine, Ocotillo, Charles Cron, and Patrick Foote, many taken on NS Wild Flora Society field trips.
