Wildflower Bonanza at the Narrows

As promised or threatened, we hiked through the Narrows along the river today.  The place was a wildflower fairyland.  There were: pale blue wild hyacinth, deep purple larkspur, masses of pink, lavender, and purple phlox and dame’s rocket, bouquets of bright golden ragwort and delicate white spring cress (?), deep red trillium scattered everywhere, and violets of every color–white, yellow, pink, lavender, and deep purple.  Less desirable but still pretty were the masses of invasive yellow lesser celandine covering the forest floor.  I think I have most of those IDs right; I’m still learning them.
