Spring Flowers

Marcy’s Woods at the south end of Halloway Bay Road is privately owned nature gem by he DiCienzo family. There is plenty to see any time of the year. Here’s what you might see flower-wise on one such spring walk in this Carolinian setting. “It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Coltsfoot and its yellow blooms were first spotted near the beginning of the Lower Trail. Soon we found delicate Spring beauties and Sharp-lobed hepaticas with their varied hues. Here too were Dutchman’s breeches and a few white blossomed Bloodroots. Then as we walked further on the rolling terrain we came to our cluster of White trillums and a sprinkling of its cousin the Purple trillium/ This is Trillium Heaven! Hill and vale now abound with trilliums. Wild leeks are still there and near the cabin we find Wild ginger. We stay on the trails as we were told. So much more to see and hear for this is bird country too. We will return.”
