Photo Phenology revisited: A 3 Bridges Park photo essay

In March I reported on the Urban Ecology Center's Photo Phenology program, which is a monthly exercise in observation and documentation of seasonal plant and animal life cycles in the parks near the Menomonee Valley Branch. On Saturday I once again accompanied a team of Phenologists, Scott and Andrea, who volunteer at the Center. We walked through 3 Bridges Park to see what we could see. Here is what I saw. 

Downy wood mint
Birdsfoot trefoil
Ohio spiderwort
Smooth hawksbeard (non-native)
Virginia wild rye
Canada wild rye
Cover crop, mixed seed
Community Garden plots under construction:

Common ninebark
