Sunday May 28, 2017 Groton Wildflower Hike by George Longenecker & Cynthia Martin

Trip leaders never know how many people will turn up for an outing; it could be none or many. For our annual spring wildflower hike 18 came. On our Groton State Forest route from New Discovery State Park to Big Deer, around Osmore Pond and back we saw lady's slippers, dwarf ginseng, mayflowers, painted trillium and Clintonia, to name a few. Despite the ever-present black flies, it was a fine day to be out in the verdant woods.
