On Sunday I took a walk at Cedar Creek Park in Westmoreland County, famous for its spring wildflowers.
The Cedar Creek valley was gorgeous. The eastern hillside was carpeted in white trillium (Trillium grandiflorum), the valley was coated in Blue-eyed Mary (Collinsia verna) and the western hill was a deep shade of blue, colored by Virginia Bluebells (Mertensia virginica) pictured here.
This is the week to see spring wildflowers in southwestern Pennsylvania. Don’t miss them!
