Goll Woods

Dan and I took a drive out to Goll Woods today.  It is a patch of old growth forest in Northwest Ohio.  I haven't been there in many years and I don't ever remember having been there in the Spring.  The forest floor was literally carpeted with flowers.

Swamp Buttercup

Toad shade Trillium

a yellow violet

Spring Beauty

Yellow Trout Lilly

Nodding Trillium

I don't remember having ever seen a more pristine forest floor.  The one Garlic Mustard plant we came across has been safely dispatched to the trash heap.
This forest was once part of the Great Black Swamp - not a pleasant place to visit once the mosquitoes hatch  But I'm putting it on my list of places to return each Spring.
