Walking in the Spring Woods

These photos were taken in early April in a wooded valley near Rockcliff Farm. The first group are of White Baneberry (Actaea pachypoda) which is rare in the North Carolina Piedmont. The photos of the Painted Buckeyes (Aesculus sylvatica) were taken in the same area. Painted Buckeyes are not uncommon; the flowers are yellow or yellow-green. These pink and red forms are very unusual.
