I wander around the wilderness behind the house every day, almost. I take a lot of photos of mushrooms, wildflowers, insects, leaves and anything else in nature, especially unusual or seldom noticed things. The wilderness is located in the northeast corner of Alabama. It's on the Cumberland Plateau, which is toward the southern end of the Appalachian Mountains.

Early Spring WildFlowers
These are a few of the photos I took today and a few I have taken earlier this spring. The wildflowers here seem to be a little slower blooming than last year. They bloomed very early last year and this year is probably nearer normal.
Jack in the Pulpit
Trillium and a few Rue Anemone beside a stream
The shooting star and the white Phlox were taken on Rufner Mountain in Birmingham, Al.
I haven't seen either here. Yet.
I'll add more spring wildflower photos as I find them. I checked some Showy Orchis today and they are up but not yet blooming.
