the bluets (Houstonia caerulea) are blooming in west greenwich, anyway. these beauties are also known as “quaker ladies.” i think i like that name better.



the magnolia tree at the old ellis farm homestead is also in bloom. it’s pretty spectacular.

and here is coney brook in full voice. it was really loud and energetic today.

you can find tillinghast pond in the hikefindertrailhead, auntie’s trail map.
