We had a very nice walk. The terrain was a bit more rugged that expected and the pollen was severe, but all worked out fine.  There were nice ravines with rock faces scattered along the route we chose. The buckeyes and azaleas put on the best show for us.  Flowers encountered included Catesby's trillium (Trillium Catesbaei), common blue violet (Viola sororia), wood violet (V. palmata), halberd-leaved violet (V. hastata),  foam flower (Tiarella cordifolia), windflower (Anemone quinquefolia), yelow star-grass (Hypoxis hirsuta), violet wood sorrel (Oxalis violacea), Piedmont azalea (Rhododendron canescens), painted buckeye (Aesculus sylvatica), dwarf crested iris (iris cristata), dwarf iris (I. verna), little brown jugs (Hexastylis arifolia), bigleaf magnolia (Magnolia macrophylla), silverbell (Halesia tetraptera), redbud (Cercis canadensis), flowering dogwood (Cornus florida), hairy woodrush (Luzula acuminata), columbine (Aquilegia canadensis), and yellow lady slipper (Cypripedium parviflorum var. pubescens).  Also numerous upland sedges were in flower throughout the route.
