Yesterday evening, I visited the headquarters of the Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy near Schenksville, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. At the headquarters, they maintain an educational learning center and a system of trails branching throughout their property.
One of their trails took me down along a portion of the East Branch of the Perkiomen Creek. Since I often make reference to the Perkiomen Creek and tributaries, you might want to look at a map of this creek and its tributaries. The tributaries include the East Branch, Unami, Swamp, and Skippack Creeks. Perkiomen Creek itself feeds into the Schuylkill River.
Mayapple flowers are one of my favorite childhood nature memories. When we would go for a walk in the woods with my dad in the Spring, I would eagerly look for them and then just a little later their fruit.Wild Geranium (Geranium maculatum)
Virginia Bluebells (Mertensia virginica)
Star of Bethlehem (Ornithogalum umbellatum)
