Locust Blossoms and Great Waterleaf
Black locust is in bloom. On hills the white flowers form puffs of white against the green leaves of other trees. They bloom later than most, their branches standing nearly bare into May.
One local Locust grove shelters a thick carpet of blooming Great Waterleaf. Covering perhaps an acre or so, the pale purple or blue flowers stream over the banks of the small curving creek and edge up the hill bordering the grove.
