Wildwood Park – A Taste of Home

May 24, 2007 at 12:05 am 6 comments

Today my colleagues and I stopped by Wildwood Park in Marshfield, Wisconsin.  We parked and decided to talk a walk on the Ecology Trail.  Right at the trailhead I spied some familiar friends– Trillium and Virginia Creeper.

Just like our group hike last week in Southwest Virginia, the trillium almost 1000 miles northwest are in full bloom.  That wasn’t the only familiar faces.  I also saw some Mayapple and Wild Geraniums in bloom as well.

Wildwood Park also contains a free zoo of wild animals- elk, deer, buffalo, wolves, turkeys.  Our favorite was a completely white whitetail deer.

    I have managed to get just one Trillium to establish in my garden, to see so many is fantastic! What I do manage to grow and have many of is geraniums. They give so much value in the garden and I also see many when walking country lanes. Thanks for the pictures.
