The big splash of spring wildflowers is over but there are some treats out there if you know where to look.
Last weekend Dianne Machesney visited the Butler-Freeport Trail and found wild columbine blooming. It’s also blooming at the Magee Marsh boardwalk in northwestern Ohio, the first time I’ve ever seen it there.
The hot weather in March put the plants ahead of schedule in Ohio just as they are here. Maybe I’ve finally seen what Magee Marsh vegetation looks like just after the warblers — and birders — are gone.
