The few days of warm weather have brought the early wild flowers out in the Toronto ravine parks. The southwest facing slopes are warmed by the sun and are now showing the first flowers. There are small yellow Colts Foot, pure white Bloodroot, soft pink Hepatica and purple Dog Faced Violets. They make for a pleasant walk in the woods.

For those that don’t know these things there is a month between the last snow and the leafing of the deciduous trees and this is an opportunity and niche for plants to grow on the forest floor in southern Ontario. Otherwise there’s too little sunlight. This is the wild flower niche. Once the deciduous trees leave these forest floor plants wither away.

The peak of the forest wild flowers is usually May 10th with the Trilliums peaking about May 14th.
