The trees reach for the sky.
These are trout lily leaves, poking up out of the forest floor. Our friend Wendy showed us that these are edible. They taste a little like sweet peas (the bean, not the flower!). You can eat the roots, too. They're nice in a salad.
Here's a bunch of them, growing at the base of a tree.
They also flower (hence the name, I suppose!). Isn't it beautiful?
These tiny purple flowers started growing everywhere a week ago.
Some of the things that grow here are a little strange. This plant has rust-coloured flowers. I can only imagine the insects that are attracted to this!
Even the slightly nasty plants are growing like crazy.
