Day 241 - Rivermist Park

Today I returned to Rivermist Park in Frederick to look for trilliums.  I didn't see any here, but I know they are in bloom now, just not at this park.

The day was fabulous, though, so I walked the long paved path to the end, then crossed over to the island and walked the loop around the island, then back to the paved path again.  There were a number of runners, walkers, and fishermen around, all enjoying the great weather and nature.

The landscape had changed significantly since I was there a few weeks ago.  There were still a few bluebells, but now tall grasses have taken over, obscuring the lesser celandines and making great hiding places for Mr. Slithers.  One fisherman told me he had already seen three snakes on the paths.  I kept a wary eye after that.

Take advantage of getting out into this fabulous weather, if you can.  Rivermist Park is a great place to appreciate nature, even the slithery kind.
