This is the beginning of our 25th year of looking at wildflowers in Cook County, MN. We are three senior women who just love to get out and explore and learn new things. We are even getting together all winter but don't find too many flowers at that time, but no matter.

Wednesday, May 24th, 2006 - Report by

Last weekend I went to Moose Lake to visit Blacklock's Wildflower Sanctuary. The Trillium & Bellwort were in bloom and I walked the paths and took pictures and collected wood ticks. From there we went to Mpls for a birthday party. On the way home on Interstate #35 between Hinkley and Willow River - it was exciting to see MANYChikWauk Lodge - Photo by Lorraine Anderson patches of Trillium as far as the eye could see. They were in Birch forests as well as Red Pine forests. The lilacs in Mpls. were almost done while the lilacs here are just beginning to turn color. Today, Wednesday, we went to the end of the Gunflint Trail to look for wild flowers around Chik-Wauk Lodge. They are hoping to make this lovely stone building into a historic site with trails. It is a beautiful place, lots of large rocks covered with ferns and lichens. Of special interest were three Pink Moccasin-flower in bud. Other things we saw in bloom today were: Wood Anemone, Goldthread, Pussy-toes, Strawberries, Corydalis, Bearberry, Currant, Blueberries, Eyebrite & British Soldiers (they aren't really a flower!) and many Marsh Marigolds. The special thing for the week were the many blooming wild fruit trees: Elderberry, Pin Cherry and Juneberry. The Tamarak trees are so beautiful with their new needles and so are the hillsides with the many shades of fresh greens. It again, was a wonderful day.!!
