Rainy Day Hike at BHCL

My hiking shoes are no longer waterproof!  Highlights of a very wet walk included:

Meadow Garlic


Multiflora Rose

 Spotted Cranesbill

Sassafrass leaf

Cedar Apple Rust

Galls develop on juniper trees on needles and small twigs.  Once mature, these galls swell considerably and produce orange, gelatinous horns during rainy spring weather.  Well, I guess we've had enough rain the last couple of days, and here is the proof!  As the rains end, the galls die, and the portion of the twig where the gall was will also die.

 Northern Mockingbird

I also saw two Indigo Buntings and a Rose-Breasted Grosbeak!
