May 5th, 2012 - Report by Erik W. L. Anderson

This week I noticed Marsh Marigolds (Cowslip) blooming in the ditches along Highway 61 in many areas, such Caribou Falls - Photo by Erik W. L. Anderson, 2012as Silver Bay, Croftville, and Colvill.  They have also been seen blooming on the Gunflint Trail. 

I took a hike up to Caribou Falls.  During that hike I saw purple and yellow violets, dandelion, wood anenome, and fly honeysuckle blooming.

In Colvill, I also found a beautiful batch of Bloodroot.

Anemone, Wood - Anemone quinquefolia
