The arbutus is starting to bloom, the first of the spring flowers here. There is a small patch, easy to find, on the trail leading up to the “throne”. Look just to the left, opposite the white birch and aspen trees on the right. Look carefully; it is only an inch high. And please don’t pick any!
…next up, Amelanchier (Shadbush is the nickname, but none yet back to our section of the Susquehanna.)
