Smoky Mountain Memories
by Brenda Hoss

Latest Update: April 15, 2013


This stick was meant for walking.

A visit to the greater Smoky Mountain area April 5-7, 2013 resulted in a delightful find of wildflowers, especially since we were not expecting to see any. We decided the season is going to be a little later than usual but did find a treasure or two blooming: Spring Beauty, Ginger (Hexastylis arifolia), Trailing Arbutus, Blue Violet, Sharp-Lobed Hepatica, Round-Lobed Hepatica, Hispid Buttercup, Bloodroot, Fringed Phacelia, Phlox, Rue Anemone, Yellow Woodland Violet. The Partridge Berry had beautiful, shiny red berries. We found Trillium just opening in a couple of sunny coves. Photos attached.
