The welcoming sunshine guides my trek into the forest. As I move quietly through the undergrowth the small songbirds shift to higher perches in the trees. I have been trying to desensitize them my presence and some of them no longer flee the yard completely as I pass but they’re not quite trusting yet. I give them a drawn out “hi-lo” whistle just as I do while filling the feeders. My hope is that they’ll begin to associate my call with being fed and develop some trust. As I enter the shaded spot on the edge of the property a few Crane Flies cross the sunbeams and in t he mottled light it’s easy to imagine that the fairies have taken wing to avoid being found.
Looking around, I noticed that the Mayapple has bloomed. Even if I never got a chance to collect a little of the fruit I’d still keep them around for the beautiful flowers they produce. The flowers don’t really last long. They soon fade away and not too long afterwards are replaced by a single green fruit about the size of a grape. I’ll be watching them closely this year to see if I can beat the squirrels to a few but for now I the flowers to brighten my path.
