Take to the Trails and See Oregon Ridge in Bloom

As the tree canopy begins to leaf out, the understory at Oregon Ridge is coming into bloom.  Take to the trails and see flowering dogwood,  deciduous azalea, sweet violets – both blue and white.  Look closely and you’ll see spring beauty, Jack-in-the-pulpit and trillium.  Soon the park’s mountain laurel will be in flower too.

Bloom time is fleeting.  Enjoy the wildflowers and blossoms while you can.
