Spring at last !!

A beautiful day for a walk in the parks and a chance to see what spring flowers are in bloom. The red trillium's were out in full force, in the Herring Cove Provincial Park. I know there are white and painted trillium on the island too but I have never managed to find them.

A little while later I moved over to the Roosevelt Campobello International Park and found clumps of Spring Beauty in the deciduous forest, taking advantage of the bright sun light before the forest leaves out, putting them in the shade.

At the side of the Glensevern Road between the two parks I was surprised to find the Round Leaf Sundew has already emerging and actually is almost full size, which isn't very big.
