More Images from Today's Paddle

A few more beauties that caught my eye as I paddled the Hudson today:

This pink-flowered Trailing Arbutus grows where the earth is red.  Is there iron in the soil, and could the presence of that mineral affect the color of the blossoms?  I don't know.


The baby leaves of an oak, just opening


Partridge Berries bejewel the bank beneath a woodpecker-augured tree.


New bright green leaves (I don't know what plant) crowd into a crack in the rocks where Wintergreen grows
